A Simple Mission ...

Honoring Heroes     ~     Supporting Veterans

The Freedom 13 is a nonprofit 501c(3) organization (application pending) setup to aid US military veterans.

Our goal is ambitious - build a Veterans Recreational Retreat in honor of The 13 in all 50 states.

Each retreat will be a place that Veterans can strengthen the bonds they share with their families and fellow veterans. as well as be a resource for a variety of services to help them rediscover themselves on their journey back to leading a full productive civilian life.

The Freedom 13 is in the process of acquiring 2 1/2 acres of riverfront property in Robertsville, MO on the Meramec River, which will include 13 homes, a pavilion, garden, kayaks, canoes ... everything needed to help with the emotional and physical struggles our warriors experience as they transition back to normal civilian life.
