Veteran’s Day Thank You For Your Outstanding Courage!


Absolutely inspiring….just as our Veterans are!







Our Christmas Programs Start NOW!


It’s that time of year again! We’ve opened up our Morale Building Programs for the Christmas season!

We are now accepting applications from individual Wounded Warriors and Wounded Warriors and their family to be adopted by a Community Family for Christmas! We match on a first come first serve basis.

We’re also accepting applications to from Businesses and Community Families to adopt an individual Wounded Warrior and/or a Wounded Warrior and their family. You may choose the size of Family to adopt and you may adopt more than one Warrior/Family.

We will begin matching families to adopt in early November and continue through mid December 2023.

We’re also collecting gift cards and donations for our Christmas Gift-A-Card program! Our gift card program is a fun and strategic way to say Thank You to our brave Warriors for ALL they have done to keep us free at a big sacrifice, while still focusing on given needs at this special time of year. Our older stocking program was nice, but candy, popcorn etc, while appreciated last 5 min. This give a gift card lasts longer and has more meaning.
