This is our chance to honor some of our veterans who have served and sacrificed for our country
If you are a veteran of the U.S. military who's served in Iraq or Afghanistan in recent years we invite you and your family to enjoy a 5-night Gunflint vacation completely free of charge.
Bring your spouse and children, or your significant other, and receive our thanks for your commitment to our country. We'll provide your accommodations, all your meals and our guided naturalist activities.
If you're a qualified veteran please contact us, tell us how many are in your family, where you served and your rank. We'll let you know by October 1 if we're able to host you. (We do ask that you provide proof that you were an active-duty soldier in either Iraq or Afghanistan.)
We're not very scientific in deciding who we can host. But we try to fit each family in the correct sized cabin, and get a casual mix of rank. We give some preference to E-3 through E-8, and for those who've served multiple tours of duty in these two combat zones.
This is a picture of our son, Robert, the most recent veteran in our family.
