"To each and every one of you that has made the decision to enlist, thank you."

— Holli Lewandowski, Board of Directors

If you have already enlisted, thank you! If you are thinking about enlisting, we appreciate your willingness to serve.

Our dream is to say thank you to every young man and woman in Wisconsin that enlists in the military, and to be able to help get them home. Visit our News page to read about some of the individuals who have already received one of our Travel Awards.
