Service Member & Veteran Support

The Sonnentag American Foundation is patriotic and a strong supporter of the United States Armed Forces. Our Foundation partners with organizations that enhance the lives of service members, wounded warriors, veterans, and critically ill and injured service members of all branches of the U.S. military.

We believe in empowering veterans to lead fulfilling civilian lives after their service and treating all service members with respect and dignity. Our support helps provide safe and accessible housing, career coaching and skills training, and trained service dogs to enhance their quality of life and recreational opportunities. In addition to these initiatives, we also support educational efforts and the construction of memorials to ensure future generations understand the honor and sacrifice of wearing the cloth of this country.

Camp Hope

Farmington, MO

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.
