Sometimes it takes a village ...


Volunteers. Boots on the ground.

Join us as we work to Remember and Honor those that made the ultimate sacrifice and support those, and their families, that have made it back home.

It's simple to sign up, and the cause is more than worthwhile.

The goal of our Mission is to build Veteran Recreational Retreats across the country - at least 1 in each state - with the first Village being planned for Missouri, our son Jared's home state.

To help raise the money needed, we have several events in the planning stages for 2023, and we're looking for Volunteers to help raise awareness and help "spread the word".
