“There was a clear need for a place that at its core would re-galvanize our returning troops with their families and represent the essence of their towns from which they came," said Ken Falke.

Boulder Crest Retreat, a 37- acre privately-funded Loudoun County facility with accommodations and recreational therapeutic services aimed at helping wounded warriors and their families relax and reconnect, has just received a $10,000 donation from SunTrust Foundation.
Boulder Crest, a non-profit organization, built on the private land that Ken Falke and his wife donated in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. His vision is to provide a respite from the stress of clinical hospital environments and rehabilitation treatments these wounded warriors live in on a daily basis. Troops and their immediate families will be invited to spend time in this beautiful rural retreat free of charge. Ken is a retired U.S. Navy EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) expert and successful local entrepreneur.
“There was a clear need for a place that at its core would re-galvanize our returning troops with their families, represent the essence of their towns from which they came, and remind these veterans of the overarching reasons why they chose to serve and sacrifice for our nation. It is an honor to have SunTrust on our team,” said Ken Falke.
Since 2002, over 40,000 of the more than 2 million deployed troops have sustained lifelong injuries, including over 1,800 major amputees. Another 600,000 are estimated to be suffering from traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). “Our wounded soldiers deserve a place where they can be with their families to recover and reconnect,” added Ken.
