Caleb Suh is the Founder and President of Operation Golden Shield and oversees strategy and development of the organization. He established Operation Golden Shield in response to the needs of elderly Veterans in the Greater Washington DC area during the COVID pandemic and spearheaded expansion efforts to reach communities in need across the country and abroad.
As a social entrepreneur and fourth-year Cadet at the United States Military Academy, Caleb has worked with the Department of Veterans Affairs, United Sailors and Soldiers of America, Team Rubicon, and several other organizations to address community health care issues and to meet the needs of impoverished populations in the nation and abroad through direct community service projects and through fundraising support of other organizations that align to that mission.
As a Systems and Decision Sciences major, he has published research in partnership with McKinsey & Company on the state of the U.S. manufacturing industry, aiming to identify key vulnerabilities in the defense industrial base in order to strengthen long-term supply chain resiliency. Caleb is a Stamps Scholarship recipient and seeks to enable communities around him to facilitate meaningful civic engagement in an effort to raise the social capital of his generation.
Caleb plans to commission as an Infantry Officer in the United States Army following his undergraduate education at West Point.
Operation Golden Shield will be holding a collection event on Saturday, July 22 to collect and deliver requested high-priority items in individually packed care packages to Veterans experiencing homelessness at the DC VAMC Community Living Center and residents of the Emery Low Barrier Shelter.
