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?
The project has been approved by all authorities on Fort Rucker, however, this project will not begin until sufficient donations are in hand to ensure completion of the dock. The good news is 100% of the proceeds received will be used to build this dock. The members of the WWVC are all volunteers and there will not be any administrative cost for this project. Once completed, the dock will be donated to Fort Rucker MWR allowing for injured and ill veterans use of this “American Disabilities Act” compliant retreat.

This is the RIGHT project, at the RIGHT time, for the RIGHT reason!The Wounded Warrior Retreat by the Lake at Lake Tholocco, Fort Rucker, Alabama, was completed and ribbon cutting ceremony took place in September 2018. The next phase of this project, to provide wounded veterans an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, is to build a handicap accessible dock in front of this cabin. Veterans and their families have already been enjoying the beautiful accommodations. These same veterans and the proud military community of Fort Rucker and surrounding Wiregrass area, are greatly anticipating this wonderful addition.
Just as the vision of the cabin could not have become reality without much support from donors like you, it will take great support again to make this dock a reality.
