Operation Vacation is a grassroots, nonprofit organization based in Glenwood Springs whose purpose is to reunite deserving soldiers with their families on free vacations in the Roaring Fork Valley and Grand County in Colorado and Dallas and Austin in Texas. Operation Vacation, funded entirely by private and corporate donations, also seeks to promote support and sponsorship of the organization in the communities it serves. Operation Vacation is committed to carrying out missions of gratitude by deploying our troops for all expenses-paid weekend getaways, allowing them quality family time and peace and freedom they put their lives on the line for everyday.
