Project Description

The #35th Gathering of Mountain Eagles, 3 April – 6 April 2019

Flyer GME XXXV Apr 2019

The #35th Gathering of Mountain Eagles will be conducted from 3 April – 6 April 2019.

Gathering of Mountain Eagles will be conducting our 35th event from 3-6 April 2019 in the upstate of South Carolina.

We invite you to participate in this event with whitewater rafting on the Chattooga River; a choice of ziplining or fly fishing or an introduction to equine (horse) therapy; a Clemson baseball game; a Veterans Memorial Walk (1 Mile) at Clemson University; and attendance at the Clemson Spring Orange/White football game.  Naturally, good food and nice places to stay are included.  All this is free to you and a spouse once you arrive. (See the attached flyer)

For those interested, please go online and fill out the form  at to apply.  As there are three events early on Friday, 5 April, you need to rank order choices based on your interests.  So, on the bottom of the application form, please indicate your 1st, 2nd and 3rd preferences for equine therapy, fly fishing and ziplining.  I will try to accommodate everyone, but based on our required commitment of minimum numbers for each activity, that may not always be possible. 

As always, new veterans have priority for attendance, but we have very rarely turned applicants down, especially if you can wait until the last week or two.

We hope you can come with us and have a great time in beautiful mountains of South Carolina!

Please pass this onto other wounded/injured/disables veterans and their spouses who might be interested.  Thanks!
