Let us introduce ourselves

A few words from Mary

In 2010 my son called me from Afghanistan shortly before coming home after a long and heroic deployment. He started the conversation with ” I have a mission for you, if you choose to accept it….” He didn’t need to finish before I said yes. While his unit was deployed in the Kunar Valley  they were embedded with 3 Latvian soldiers whose task was to train the Afghan National Army. My “mission” was to raise enough money for the Latvian soldiers, to be able to come back to Fort Carson for the end of deployment ball. Mission accomplished and all had a great time.

How it all came to be…

We are excited for the future

Fast Forward to Spring 2015 when, because of many reasons, I allowed the idea that had being creeping in my head become a project and begin to raise money for the same unit, who have long parted ways, to have another reunion. In June 2016 , with the help of countless people, twenty-three men of this highly decorated group, from all over the country and Latvia too, spent 4 days in Northern Minnesota. As I spent the weekend on the sidelines my resounding thought was…”more veterans need to experience this.”  And hence R.A.W. was born.

No better place to get you re-energized

Our events bring a special kind of feeling to the table.
