Our Mission

Operation R & R is a non -profit organization, founded in 2008, dedicated to serving Military Families and Gold Star Families who have sacrificed extended time apart from loved ones, been injured or worse in their line of duty. Over 1700 families have been helped since 2008.

WJCL 22 Interview with ORR Director

Specifically, Operation R&R provides a 4-7 night, virtually free, stress free experience on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina for:

  • Military families completing multiple, long term deployments to help them reconnect with their spouse and children.
  • American Gold Star Families and other family members to offer time to reflect and heal as a result of their child or spouse suffering the ultimate sacrifice on our behalf.

All monies raised by Operation R & R come from personal donations, fundraising activities and corporate donations.

“My husband's stressed look melted from his face the minute he saw the ocean from our balcony.”
