The art of war: Hilton Head gives two US Army couples peace in a most unexpected way
We are honored and privileged to partner with the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Tower Foundation to bring FDNY and NYCP First Responders from 9/11. It’s another way to say, We Will Never Forget.
Please help us show these men and women our unwavering loyalty and eternal gratitude.
All donations go directly to Operation R&R for the purposes of bringing first responders from the FDNY and NYPD to Hilton Head. The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation is working with ORR to provide worthwhile candidates for this program. The Tunnel to Towers Foundation will not receive any funds from ORR.

Operation R&R far exceeding any expectations we had in coming for the week! We had no idea we would be thanked so often and blessed so richly. I was in tears 3 times in one week (and I’m NOT a cryer!) for the sheer magnitude of “blessed” I felt

I would like to let the businesses who gave us discounts know that their contribution made the trip equally enjoyable. We really couldn’t have enjoyed nearly as much without the restaurants, mini-golf, etc’s discounts. Many restaurants will be recommended to family and friends who visit Hilton Head from Savannah and surrounding areas

The time spent as a family on HHI during my husband’s 18 days leave was magical! Enduring these 15 months apart is made easier because of the generous hearts of those who understand, and we can’t thank you enough. The fact that you are out there to recognize us is so humbling and flattering. Thank you!
The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war. (MacArther)
Words cannot express our gratitude for the brave First Responders who run toward danger to selflessly save others.
The only thing harder then being a soldier is loving one.
Thank you to our wonderful sponsors. We truly appreciate your help, encouragement and support. Without you our mission would not be possible.
