Charitable Giving


The Mid-Atlantic Chapter of NCRS is pleased to designate the ”Serve Our Willing Warriors” as our official charity.  MAC has supported different worthy charities in the past and upon learning about Willing Warriors we were impressed with the dedication to the numerous veterans who are undergoing lengthy recovery from a variety of wounds.

The mission of Serve Our Willing Warriors is to “provide cost-free retreat stays and programs that positively impact wounded, ill and injured service members, disabled veterans and their families.”

In December 2006, the pastor of Park Valley Church https://www.parkvalleychurch.com/ in Haymarket, Virginia, asked the church small group leaders to organize a unique community service project.  One group decided to host a “taste-of-home” Christmas celebration for service members undergoing treatment at Walter Reed Army Medical Center … now Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.  This event ignited a passion in the hearts of everyone involved, and it was decided to continue hosting similar events at military hospitals throughout the National Capital Area. In 2012, the idea to establish a dedicated retreat property for the warriors was envisioned.  As a first step, the two leaders of the original church group founded Serve Our Willing Warriors as a 501 (c)(3) organization.

In March 2013 a large, aging house, situated on 37 acres of land located at 16013 Waterfall Road, Haymarket, VA,, was acquired to serve as the lodging house of a dedicated retreat facility.  Once again, the intention was to provide a taste-of-home experience for our recovering Warriors but this time, in the form of a relaxing getaway from the medical center environment.  Following a two-year labor of love involving the help of more than 1000 individuals and the in-kind donations of 120 contractors and building suppliers, renovation work on the house was completed., renovation work on the house was completed.

After the completion of the original home, a second house was built & completed.

Now a 3rd home is being funded by donations & will be built in the future.

The Warriors spend six days at the retreat with their families.

To help meet the needs of this worthy organizatin, Chuck Berge organized, in 2020, the first annual “Vettes for Vets” event at the Haymarket facility.  The second event was held July 10, 2021.  The third “Vettes for Vets” will be held July 9, 2022.  Place this event on your calenders.  MAC member registration information will be communicated in the near future.
