OUR MISSION is to provide support and encouragement to our nation’s warriors and their families during their recovery process and a peaceful retreat for them to escape to and rebuild their lives.
For nearly a decade, Serve Our Willing Warriors (SOWW) has been providing “a little taste of home” for our wounded, ill and injured warriors and their families at both the Walter Reed and Fort Belvoir Community Hospitals. Our annual events have included gift-giving at holidays, summer cookouts and visitation with lonely service and family members.
Our goal was to create a growing coalition of aware, engaged and supportive individuals, companies and communities to work alongside us as we continue to provide ongoing support to our wounded, ill and injured warriors and their families through sponsoring “Willing Warrior” hospital events and peaceful, restorative “Warrior Getaways” at our Warrior Retreat at Bull Run.
We established the Warrior Retreat at Bull Run in 2015 in beautiful Haymarket, VA. Situated on 37 acres on the edge of the Bull Run Mountains, our 11,000 square foot house provides “a home away from home” for our outpatient warriors and their families currently residing at the nearby military hospitals. Our warriors and their families are invited to spend weekend or week-long retreats surrounded by an appreciative community that provides activities, Visiting Chef Program, special events and camaraderie in accordance with the desires of our honored guests.
