Nottingham-Based Farm Retreat for Veterans, Their Families Now Home to Mount America Foundation
Vietnam War veteran George Turak and his wife Michelle own Gray Horse Farm in Nottingham. They’ve transformed the property into a sanctuary that has served veterans and their families for over a decade.
Now, it is now officially home to the Mount America Foundation, writes Richard Gaw for the Chester County Press.
The nonprofit serves veterans and those who are still serving. It also honors the families of soldiers killed while serving their country.
For the past several years, the foundation has organized river-fishing outings at Gray Horse Farm for soldiers from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. It has hosted Gold Star families, as well as dignitaries from almost all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces.
Gray Horse Farm is also home to seven bronze Soldiers Crosses created by Vietnam War veteran and sculptor Andrew Chernak to honor fallen soldiers.
“Being allowed to give back to people who have given so much of themselves — and to honor those who have died on the battlefield and their families — means so much to us, but more to the people we have met and continue to meet,” said Turak.
