Brave Hearts Estate

Brave Hearts Estate is a 238 acre ranch that was donated to Operation Injured Soldiers by a patriot and generous supporter of our injured veterans.  Opened in the spring of 2015,  Brave Hearts serves as a place for veterans and their family to relax and enjoy time away in a country setting.  Our veterans enjoy home cooked meals and bed and breakfast style lodging completely free of charge.  The main house has 7 bedrooms, a dining room, family room, living room, and large fully equipped kitchen and laundry room. The estate is wheelchair accessible on the main floor.  A full time caretaker /manager will be on site 24/7 to support vets and their families.
