Operation ReConnect’s goal is to host 100+ military service members from all over the U.S. and their families for a full week to ReConnect after just returning from a multiple-month overseas Combat Deployment. After testing this “large group” scenario in 2018 during “Fighter Wing Week”, we learned how important this week is for each and every family that has the opportunity to participate. Having served more than 50 families in 2018 during FWW, we are eager to apply what was learned from last year to this years “ReConnect Week - Fall 2019” scheduled for Saturday, October 19th - 26th, 2019.

With the continuous support we receive from the City of Orange Beach along with many local businesses, together we can show our pride and support for those who sacrifice so much to keep the United States of America safe.

The Operation ReConnect Team can not do this alone. Over the past three (3) years, Operation ReConnect has worked seamlessly with both individuals and rental management companies to bring close to 500 military families to our beautiful beaches in Southern Alabama & Northwest FL. The 'gift of time' we provide to our service-members and their families upon returning from overseas, is absolutely invaluable. This no-strings attached time, allows for families to have the opportunity to relax and reintegrate on their terms. Whether you are a Post 9/11 Combat Veteran, Coastal Property Owner, Property Management Company, a local business or just an individual who would like to get involved: There are a wide-ranging assortment of opportunities to engage. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have an idea or suggestion that will enhance this experience for the military families we serve.
