Excerpts from Destination R&R attendees:
"......You have sought out the disabled service members, including their families, recognized and honored them in a way that is unheard of in today's society.....My favorite part of the trip only last 20 seconds. It occurred when our son looked up at his Dad and for the first time, didn't see his disabled father, but he saw his hero. Thank you for that wonderful gift."
"......The trip made a profound impact on our family and we will be forever grateful......We will never forget how much you have changed our lives"
