Providing an atmosphere where veterans can come daily to be among others to which they can relate to without judgment, pressure and negative influence.
Open minded concepts on handling daily operations due to the fact of the never ending challenges Veterans experience and face.
To work hand in hand with all veteran agencies, programs and groups to maximize our success in rehabilitation and daily living for our nation's heroes.

Every veteran's service time has a different story and carries unique challenges.
Veterans will be able to come to Camp Liberty to enjoy the great outdoors, horses, fishing, hunting, gardening and find what they like to call peace.
Camp Liberty will not be a place filled with rules, strict regulations and confinement. It will be a place where veterans can feel at home and be anyone they want to be.
Staff are available 24/7 to assist veterans.
