Camp Patriot

This w/fs link discusses a camp in Montana for disabled vets:

http://www.camppatriot.org/

"Mission Statement:

Camp Patriot exists to take disabled U.S. Veterans on outdoor adventures.

Today, there are over 2.3 million disabled Veterans in the U.S. These brave Veterans sacrificed much in order to ensure our safety and freedom. The number of disabled men and women Veterans is growing with each day the war on terror continues. All of these Veterans had dreams about the future, but many of those dreams were lost due to injuries suffered in the line of duty.

Outdoor activities that they hoped to do in the future have vanished due to their disability. We want to thank these veterans by showing them that with the right help they can again enjoy the great outdoors.

With the construction of a first-class lodge outside of Libby, MT, we will be able to accommodate up to 20 Veterans per week. There will be no cost to the Veteran. We will provide a range of outdoor activities, and will be equipped to accommodate Veterans with an array of disabilities."

Good cause. I'm going to mail them a check, and would encourage anyone so inclined to do so as well. Some of you may also be, or know, people who might enjoy a visit there.
