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.

Please consider partnering with us to help many wounded servicemen, servicewomen and their families enjoy the time of their lives. Click on the Contributions button on your left to get started now.

Big thanks to KREX-TV in Grand Junction for giving us some time on the news this past Memorial Day. As Kalvin was out remembering and honoring the sacrifices of those who have gone before and publicizing the present-day work of Wounded Warriors – Sons and Daughters of America for our wounded veterans, astute KREX reporters grabbed him for this interview:

Soldiers attending to serious wounds in Iraq. We must pause to remember our servicemen and women's sacrifices.

As Devorah and Kalvin are out and about promoting the vision of the Wounded Warriors – SAD Restoration Center they’ve found a common thread. So many veterans and family members alike are saying that they wish that there had been something like that for them when they returned from combat. There is almost no one untouched by the effects of war in this nation, and the need for our work is great!

Countless families and relationships have suffered the consequences of the loss of loved ones, or a returning warrior whose silent wounds have scarred their persona and ability to relate to those around them. We seek to work in the effort to restore lives and support families in their journey of healing.

We salute those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

We remember those who have braved many terrors to serve their country.

We honor those whose sacrifices have dealt them personal blows.

We are grateful for those who poured out blood, sweat, and tears on the field of battle.

Please pray for our troops on the ground and those wounded warriors returning who desperately need to heal.

It is our turn to serve our wounded.
