Military Personnel & Veteran Support
The Sonnentag family is very patriotic and we are supporters of America’s military and veterans. Our Foundation partners with organizations that focus their efforts on improving the lives of U.S. military personnel and veterans. This includes active duty members, wounded warriors, veterans of previous wars, and critically ill and injured service members of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. We believe in empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives and treating all military personnel with respect and dignity. In addition to community service initiatives, we also support education projects and memorials to make sure the next generation understands the honor and sacrifice of wearing the cloth of this country.

Honor the Fallen by Helping the Wounded
Camp Hope is a retreat for military veterans wounded in the Global War on Terror. Camp Hope covers all expenses for combat-wounded veterans, including travel, and provides ADA-compliant cabins, food and supplies, and an attentive all-volunteer staff to support veterans with almost any disability. Situated in rural Farmington, Missouri, approximately 80 miles south of St. Louis, Camp Hope is in the heartland of America.
William “Mike” and Galia White founded Camp Hope after their son Christopher paid the ultimate price for our freedoms and was killed while serving in Iraq in 2006.
Chris’s family has chosen to keep his spirit alive by helping disabled veterans and sharing with them his passion for hunting and fishing. They treat every guest of Camp Hope as members of their own family. Their love, compassion and selflessness is the secret sauce that makes Camp Hope such a special place.
With cool streams, winding creeks, granite boulders, gravel paths, tall trees and an abundance of wildlife there is plenty of open space for hiking, four-wheeling, hunting, fishing and exploring. Visits by honored guests often center around deer and turkey seasons.
