GATHERING OF MOUNTAIN EAGLES provides opportunities for wounded or injured American military service members and selected family members, to enjoy the therapeutic effects of adventure activities and relaxation opportunities primarily within the states of West Virginia and Virginia.
Secondarily, it provides occasions to thank the warriors, enhance public awareness and increase aid for all programs supporting those wounded Americans and their families.
We are a new non-profit that was founded by a small group of retired soldiers and their families. We take our inspiration to help our wounded warriors from the following quote:
"The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, will be directly proportional to how they perceive the veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their country."
George Washington, 1789
We know that we cannot help all wounded/injured soldiers, sailors, Marines, or airmen from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but we intend to do our best. With the generous help of the American people, we will make a difference.
