There are so many heroes in this great nation and so many families we can encourage. Our vision is to bring wounded warriors and their spouse or caregiver to Panama City Beach for a week of rest and relaxation. This retreat will be a time that can give them hope to carry on … a feeling that their sacrifice was not in vain… and a knowing that we as a nation are truly grateful for their service and sacrifice.
Our community has donated condos/ hotel rooms, restaurant meals, gift baskets, fishing trips, movies, tours, attraction tickets, car rentals, money and much more to show honor and appreciation for the sacrifices these soldiers have made… for us.

Biography of Tim Lee
John and Wanda Lee gave their son to God for the gospel ministry following his birth in 1950. That son grew to be a spirited and gifted athlete. He was converted at age ten but would soon develop a hostile attitude toward authority.
Tim Lee, the rebellious teenager and son of a Baptist minister, once walked the streets of McLeansboro, Illinois, in violent protest to all ordained authority in the home, the church, the school. He was a born fighter. Every inch of his life from childhood was contested for. As Billy Sunday once stated, “I know all about the dark and seamy side of life, and if ever a man fought hard, I have fought hard for everything I have ever gained.”
To escape the world around him, he joined the Marine Corps in 1969. After his training, he received orders to serve in southeast Asia. In March of 1971, he was apprehended by the hand of God along an abandoned grassy trail in Quang Nam Province, Vietnam. In that moment, engulfed in smoke, fire and holy vengeance, a land mine explosion severed two lower limbs, and placed in a wheelchair for life a young man who was to carry, without legs, a message from God to a nation.
