FORT HOPE"May the God of hope fill you with joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the holy spirit you may abound in Hope." -Romans 15:13
Fort Hope will be a refuge for veterans, whether they stay a day, a week, a month, or even up to a year.
WHAT IS FORT HOPE?
Regardless of whether they need a place to talk or a bed for the evening, Week, Month, Up to a year. Project Diehard will be there to help them. A veteran is bound to chat with their kindred veterans. The reason for Fort Hope is to give a veteran a sheltered, secure place where they can get the help and support they need.
We will give Holy Bibles and Daily Devotionals in Fort Hope’s Common Area for use by any and everybody who so wants. We will likewise direct bibles studies and quiet times as time, interest, and faculty are accessible.
Every Veteran that is thinking about utilizing Project Diehard and Fort Hope as their methods for recuperation while on these premises will sign an announcement of comprehension with that impact and will be given a Bible and daily devotionals.
Project Diehard is a religious, scripture-oriented organization. We accept and practice the perceived Holy Bible as our definitive reason for motivation, truth, and guidance.
SCHEMATIC POD DESIGN
Our goal for Fort Hope is a campus with 50 veteran pods that provide housing for 100 veterans (2 veterans per unit). Veterans will be able to stay in these units at no charge up to one year as they complete their recovery program.
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 9 Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: 10 If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. 11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? 12 Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

FORWARD OPERATING BASE RUSH
Work has begun on our first Forward Operating Base! This first Operating Base is in honor of SSgt Courtney Rush.
SCHEMATIC POD DESIGN
SSgt Courtney Rush was a 2003 graduate of Aledo high school. Follow-ing graduation she enlisted in the United States Air Force in June 2003 just 3 days after graduation. She completed her basic training at Lack-land Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. She then completed technical training at Sheppard Air Force Base in Wichita Falls, Texas and Little Rock Arkansas Air Force Base, Arkansas.
She was stationed at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, Arizona, where she was a crew chief on C1 30s.. She deployed to Kuwait for OIF. She returned and was stationed at Joint Base Charleston, South Carolina where she deployed to Qatar during OEF. Her most recent position was quality control, specializing as maintenance crew chief for C17 aircraft, a position she was chosen to do by her superiors out of nearly 1500 Air-men as a result of her dedication and love for the Air Force.
On her last deployment in Qatar she was involved in transporting the caskets of fallen members that were killed in action. This was emotionally trying but a remarkably high honor duty she took very seriously.
Courtney received many honors and awards during her brief time in the Air Force. She unfortunately took her own life and died by a gunshot wound to her head on January 3, 2012, only 7 months after returning from Qatar. She was 27 years old. Courtney was not a heavy drinker, but her blood alcohol level was .357, which is lethal in itself. She should have called. Please…call someone.
We hope your business will consider becoming one of our corporate patrons. For information on how to become a corporate patron, please email email@example.com.
