We are very proud to be able to offer use of the Wing House for our Veterans. It is our vision to offer the stay at a reasonable rate so all veterans may benefit from this beautiful home. As you may understand, the cost to maintain and upkeep the home is substantial, and the funds originally donated by the Wing Family are dwindling. If we continue at the rates we offer now, we will not be able to keep the home in operation for more than a few more years. Therefore, we are exploring creative options for raising additional money.

Operation Grateful Nation truly appreciates all of your support!


This year, we are excited to offer a raffle for use of Wing House for one week during the summer of 2023. Anyone may purchase a ticket for $20 for a week’s stay from July 8 to 14, 2023, a $2500 value, or choose $1000 cash if not able to stay. For this worthy cause, we are opening this one week up to anyone, veterans or non-veterans.
