WWVC has become aware that a need exists for a modern handicap accessible cabin at Fort Rucker, Alabama's Lake Tholocco.
Lake Tholocco and all its activities, programs, cabins, and equipment are the property of Fort Rucker Directorate of Family Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) http://rucker.armymwr.com/us/rucker The cabins at Lake Tholocco are self funded by MWR. The cabins have no military budget. Funds are raised through various means to provide services to Soldiers, Retirees, and their families. There presently is no fully accessable handicap cabin on East Beach. It is the intention of WWVC to provide this needed accomodation.
The WWVC undertook the project of providing a modern fully handicap cabin with a value not to exceed $225,000 (The actual cabin construction cost will be much less) at no cost to the government on East Beach at Lake Tholocco. This cabin will fulfill an unmet need to the wounded and ill soldiers, retirees and their families who need a handicap cabin.
We have submitted a Proffer stating our desire to build this cabin, The folks at Fort Rucker responded with a Statement of Need, and this has started the process.
Where we stand now. We have a site selected on the lake. It is the best location on East Beach for a cabin. Ft. Rucker has demolished the Two cabins built in the early 1940s that occupied that site. We have a General Contractor to oversee the project at no cost to us. Likewise we have an architect who is drawing the plans, also at no cost to us.
Currently the Proffer has been approved and staffed at local level and INSCOMM. It will be transmitted for final approval to Department of the Army upon The WWVC statement that funds are in hand.
Now we need to concentrate on fund raising. This is where you can help.

The pictures are of a current non-handicap cabin on East Beach. The cabin we will build will be similar in design but will have a carport on the right side with handicap access to the front door. Our cabin will be slightly larger to accomodate full access using a wheelchair, or other mobility device.
