Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country’s cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as he best can, the same cause. -Abraham Lincoln
ABOUT CAMP JACK
The Jack Williams Veterans Resource Center
The Jack Williams Veterans Resource Center, known affectionately as Camp Jack, was founded in October of 2020. Leaders of the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars and Disabled American Veterans came together with a vision to honor and serve the Veterans of Boone County, Arkansas.
Created by Veterans for Veterans, Camp Jack offers a safe and welcoming environment for Veterans and their families to find information on benefits, attend a meeting, or grab a cup of coffee.
The JWVRC has been named after Medal of Honor recipient and local, Jack Williams.
Jack joined the Navy, becoming a highly valued corpsman then assigned to a Marine combat unit headed to Iwo Jima.
Upon landing and for several days thereafter, Jack tended to countless wounded Marines often putting his own life at risk. Even after being shot, Jack continued treating his brothers in arms until a sniper round ended his life.
His family received the Congressional Medal of Honor, our country’s highest award for valor, on his behalf. It is in his memory and remarkable service to this country and his brothers in arms that Camp Jack is named. We strive to honor his selfless actions and hope to emulate his example of putting the needs of other ahead of our own.
Valor is stability, not of legs and arms, but of courage and the soul. We are the land of the free because we are the home of the brave. When our perils are past, shall our gratitude sleep. With bravery and strength they serve.
To serve Veterans and their families with respect, honor and compassion.
