Anyone who served even just weeks in the military is familiar with the adage, “Hurry Up & Wait!”

It’s the military way. You rush to prepare the logistics for your mission and then, well, you wait for the action. You fill out your paperwork and then you realize that your move to another station has been delayed. You hurry to prepare for your deployment to a combat zone.  Then wait for your return trip home  that can be rescheduled for another wait.

Whoever says that patience is a virtue, has never served in the military. Our military members hurry up and wait everyday.

Worse yet, you could be hurried to a hospital with a life threatening injury and made to wait for months for the disability payments you need to care for your family. These are all real scenarios that are occuring for our military personnel everyday.

For those that return with life-altering wounds such as limb loss; Traumatic Brain Injury; the effects of toxic chemical exposure; Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder; and other injuries- They find that they are left fighting and waiting for treatments.

Here’s where we identify with hurrying up just to wait a bit longer. Our project and mission are huge. It takes momentum to move towards completion and yet in our spirits, we here at Wounded Warriors – Sons & Daughters of America believe that that both the hurrying up and the waiting are an important part of establishing the Wounded Warriors Restoration Center.

We are not static in our waiting. We are writing grants; talking with organizations; networking; getting the word out locally and nationally; connecting with locals and preparing programming.

Our waiting will not be in vain. Those families that are waiting to attend the Wounded Warriors Restoration Center will  be blessed by all the efforts of our staff, volunteers, and the many organizations and private donors that have chosen to support this vital work.

Help us to hurry up by donating towards this worthy cause! Thanks for your prayers and support!

 

 

Where are you planning to go for vacation this year? A quiet Caribbean beach? Perhaps Disney with the kids? How about an adventure in the mountains?

Do you realize that for many servicemen and women that vacation becomes a word that holds no meaning for them?

All expenses paid, luxury accommodations, and transportation to the hospital. Surely our wounded combat veterans deserve something better!

How can this be? Long deployments, limited finances, and stressful reintegration back to their home life. All of these factors add to a long list of reasons why vacation may seem to be just beyond their reach.

Let’s add an injury or wound to the mix, shall we? How easy is it to go on vacation with someone who is having trouble dealing with reality? How easy is it to “get away from it all” when you can’t hold down a job because of your Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)? How easy is it to adjust to a non-handicapped world?

What if the most relaxing time that you’d had in the recent past was an extended stay in the hospital?

Can you see why we are so passionate about what we will be doing at the Wounded Warriors Restoration Center?

We’ll be offering families the chance to come and focus on healing while on an all-expenses paid vacation in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. They’ll experience healthy spa food, holistic therapies, adventures, all-out fun and a chance to breathe deep. This is the vision, and it will make a healing impact that will affect this generation and generations to come.
