After visiting Fort Villanow Veterans Project, I was shocked as to what all has been put together for the kids training program/camp. The guys were telling me about a new adventure canoe/kayaking trip down memory lane, that they are planning through the Chickamauga Battlefield.
The Veterans that work with Fort Villanow are eager to educate these kids on travel and about our country’s history dating all the way back to the Civil War. What amazed me the most, was that these guys try to operate without barely any funds AT ALL. I was SHOCKED this facility has operated on the little funds they have and that they pay most of the bills from THEIR OWN POCKETS.
I myself, have donated $500.00 toward this wonderful cause. I am sure there are other people who can donate as well. It doesn’t have to be cash, it can be anything from canoes, kayaks, to life-vests, oars, fishing poles, etc.
These donations will be used for not only the kids, but the families and Veterans of Fort Villanow Veterans Project. They will also be appreciated and used. I take my hat off for those that choose to do so.
