Wiregrass Wounded Veterans Committee
Fort Rucker’s Handicap Accessible Cabin
A need exists for a modern handicap accessible cabin at Fort Rucker’s Lake Tholocco. Once completed, this cabin will be used by injured and ill Veterans and their families. The Wiregrass Wounded Veterans Committee (WWVC) is spear heading the effort to build a 3-bedroom, 2-bath cabin at Lake Tholocco as an unconditional and unsolicited gift with a value not to exceed $225,000.
Who is the WWVC?
WWVC was established in 2010 by the Enterprise Lions Club to coordinate community-wide support for Wounded Warriors attending the Club’s annual Boll Weevil 100-Mile Bicycle Ride and 10-Kilometer Run. Today, the committee pays for the food, lodging and entry fees of warriors participating in the Boll Weevil 100 as a part of their recovery and rehabilitation program. We encourage their family members to attend and many do. WWVC funds are administered and accounted for through the Enterprise Lions Club Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. To date, WWVC has donated over $200,000 to participating U.S. Army Medical Command Warrior Transition Units at Fort Benning, Fort Campbell, Fort Gordon, Fort Jackson and Fort Stewart. In addition, WWVC assists the Fort Rucker Directorate of Family, Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (DFMWR) with events for injured and ill veterans from every U.S. conflict and every branch of service. Last year we donated $15,000 toward the purchase of a handicap accessible travel trailer.
What is our Status?
This project will not begin until sufficient donations are in hand to ensure completion of the cabin. We expect to take two years to raise the required funds and material donations (Approximately $225,000.00) and three months to build the cabin. The good news is 100% of the proceeds donated will be used to build this cabin. The members of the WWVC are all volunteers and there will not be any administrative cost for this project. Once completed, the cabin will be donated to Fort Rucker MWR allowing for injured and ill veterans “American Disabilities Act” compliant lodging.
