Deploy. Return. ReConnect.
Veterans need the gift of family time after deployment.
We find vacation homeowners thrilled to give that gift.
We link Veterans and available beach properties. Veterans returning from deployment have a lot on their plate. Finding time to plan a family trip can be tough. Operation ReConnect takes a 'community-collaboration' approach. The triad of our fundraising efforts, patriotic vacation homeowners willing to gift time in their vacant beach-side accommodations and support from all types of local and national businesses allow our military families to truly ReConnect without worry!
OLD GLORY; OPERATION RECONNECT 2018 SPECIAL PROJECT. HIGHLY CUSTOMIZED JEEP WRANGLER.
Due to numerous request, Operation ReConnect is launching another Fully-Customized Jeep to giveaway on Veterans Day, November 11th, 2018. Appropriately named after the American Flag theme, we are proud to announce "OLD GLORY" will make her debut in March 2018. This project is just as special to us as last years "Jeep of Faith" because it provides the support we need to accomplish our Mission. We aren't building Jeeps to show the world we can put our logo on a product - anyone can do that! We do this for one reason and one reason alone - To ReConnect military families after dealing with an overseas Combat Deployment. Whether you purchase one single ticket or a package of many, 100% of ALL PROCEEDS stay with our organization and go directly to veterans & their families.
Operation ReConnect will be hosting 300+ military service members from the 442d Fighter Wing (Whiteman AFB, Missouri) and their families for a full week to reconnect after just returning from a multiple-month overseas Combat Deployment. With the continuous support we receive from the City of Orange Beach along with many local businesses, together we can show our pride and support for those who sacrifice so much to keep the United States of America safe.
The Operation ReConnect Team can not do this alone. Over the past three (3) years, Operation ReConnect has worked seamlessly with both individuals and rental management companies to bring more than 200 military families to our beautiful beaches in Southern Alabama & Northwest FL. The 'gift of time' we provide to our service-members and their families upon returning from overseas, is absolutely invaluable. This no-strings attached time, allows for families to have the opportunity to relax and reintegrate on their terms.
