New Wounded Warrior Retreat To Be Built in Loudoun County VA

The groundbreaking ceremonies for the new Boulder Crest Retreat in Bluemont Virginia is scheduled for Memorial Day 2012.  The 37.5 acre retreat is being designed to create an accessible environment for wounded warriors and their families to be able to spend time away from military hospitals and enjoy time outdoors.

According to the Boulder Crest website the retreat will feature: 

"ADA handicap accessible “greentech” cabins, available for 2-7 days for approx. 250-500 families per annum.

An ADA handicap accessible “greentech” barn/meeting house with organic farm-to-table meals.

A walled organic Victorian garden, plus a field of organic produce.

A bird sanctuary and fishing pond.

Nature walks, foraging, photography, bird and wildlife watching, as well as therapeutic dogs, archery and other onsite adaptive sporting activities."

We are fortunate in Northern Virginia to be close to three major military hospitals, Bethesda, Walter Reed and Fort Belvoir Community Hospital that are offering state of the art care and facilities for wounded veterans.  The new Wounded Warrior houses at Fort Belvoir are the prototype for housing to be built across the US.  The new Fisher House will be opening soon for families visiting loved ones at the Wounded Warrior Transition Unit at Fort Belvoir.

The new Boulder Crest Retreat will be another welcome addition to our area to support our troops.

Cindy,

Fisher House and the Wounded Warrior project are two of the best charitable foundations for our Vets.

Cindy,

              I really like the Wounded Warrior program people are getting more and more aware that our wounded vets need help from people like you and me!

Cindy- this is exciting news.  When we lived in Leesburg we often went to Bluemont and the Bluemont Fair.  This will be a beautiful area for our very special wounded warriors.  They deserve so much more.

Cindy, I watched the video...very generous of one individual to donate that land...for such a worthy undertaking.

Cindy:  I can't think of any group more deserving of a retreat like this than the wounded warriors!

Hi Cindy. Our Wounded Warriors are very Special, and it Great to hear that they are building another retreat for them in your area at Bluemont VA. That's a great list of features for the New Boulder Crest Retreat.

Yolanda-the more we do as individuals and a country to show our support for our veteran's and their families the better, in my book.

Nick-yes it is and now the fundraising is in full gear.

Jane-neither can I.  Being able to get away from the hospital with their family will be a big plus in their recovery.

Jerry-all of the plans for the new Boulder Crest Retreat seem to be 1st class.
