WARRIOR WEEKEND PROGRAM
Providing Weekends of Rest and Relaxation for
America's Wounded Heroes
The Warrior Weekend Program is administered and managed by the
Oak Orchard Riverdale American Legion Post 28 located in Millsboro, DE
The Mission: Helping wounded troops and their families
The Warrior Weekend Program provides weekends of rest and relaxation for America's Heroes who have been wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan and who are undergoing recovery at our Military Medical Centers. We focus on small groups of between 8 to 12 personnel. We provide optional events to participate in at various destination cities. The idea behind the program is to take these heroes and their family members out of the hospital environment for a weekend.
The Warrior Weekend Program depends entirely on contributions from both individuals and corporations. American Legion Post 28 does not subsidize the program. It is a separate program within the Post 28 structure and its survival depends on contributions. All donations are tax deductible and a "Thank You" letter confirming every donation is issued for all contributions regardless of the amount.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
The Warrior Weekend Program is not associated with either The Wounded Warrior Project or the Warrior Foundation. We do not have an executive board or a large paid staff. The administration and management of the Warrior Weekend Program is conducted entirely by volunteers. There are no employees. Every dollar received goes 100% directly to the program and the care and welfare of our wounded heroes. We do not discriminate as to the nature and/or circumstances of injury, unit of assignment or awards received. We are truly unique in that we do not want to fill a bus or an airplane with personnel. We would rather fill a van. In that way, we can be more personal and get to know the troops and their families by their first names.

Since the beginning of the program in 2007, a total of 43 trips have taken place and in excess of 450 troops have been entertained and have enjoyed a weekend of fun and relaxation away from the hospital environment.
We were also able to provide a beach house for a week at a time and have troops at the beach for a week.
We were able to do this three times so far and we will be doing it again this summer of 2013.
