"WHY WOULD THEY BE SO KIND?"
It was a question a disabled veteran asked about the people and businesses in Custer and surrounding communities in South Dakota, who help make these respites possible.
Founded in 2011 by a retired military couple, OPERATION BLACK HILLS CABIN is located in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. It's purpose is to offer a week-long respite, to qualifying wounded veterans from the Iraq/Afghanistan campaigns, and their families, at little or no expense to them, except for transportation.
It provides a therapeutic environment to assist qualifying combat-injured veterans with their rehabilitation from their traumatic and stressful experiences, while serving the interest of our Nation. It also provides an opportunity for the disabled veterans to reacquaint themselves with their family in a quiet, peaceful and leisurely environment, far away from the stress and daily routine which has now become their "new normal". See "Frequently Asked Questions" tab (FAQ) for more information.
