Our mission continues in 2024 as we increase our program offerings to provide even more opportunities for growth.

In February 2024 Strongpoint Theinert Ranch (STR) hosted it's 21st and 22nd events.  This set the stage for what is to be our largest year of programming in our 8 year history. On STR 021 a team of 30 volunteers came together to build a 1,364 square foot wellness deck off the west side of The Barracks.


Further development was accomplished on STR 022 as military veterans who previously participated in Strongpoint events were invited to return for our annual Staff Development. As our service members work to strengthen, transition, and reconnect at STR we are honored to allow them to continue their therapeutic journey as peer facilitators. 

Working alongside our growing team of mental health professionals, our facilitators created the following 2024 program calendar:

  • STR 023 (male veterans) April 18-22

  • STR 024 (veteran artists) May 30 to June 3 

  • STR 025 (all veterans) June 6-10

  • STR 026 (female veterans) July 25-29

  • STR 027 (military families) August 1-5

  • STR 028 (all veterans) August 22-26

Please complete the form below if you are interested in attending. 

Transforming Lives 
One Strongpoint at a Time

STR continues to honor the service and sacrifice of 1LT Joe Theinert by providing services to military veterans and their families at no cost to them. In life Joe's priority was always serving others, and we are so grateful to continue giving back to our service members thanks to your generous donations. Thank you!


Please consider making a tax deductible donation today to honor our nation's veterans, their service and sacrifice. We are in need of $75,000 to cover the costs of our 2024 therapeutic programs. 


Strongpoint Theinert Ranch (STR) is a place where active and veteran military members,  their families, and Gold Star families come together to strengthen themselves both physically and mentally, transition through life’s challenges, and reconnect with friends, family, and most importantly themselves, as they bond over shared experiences and participate in a wide range of activities amongst the natural beauty of the scenic mountains and open prairies of New Mexico.

Programs at Strongpoint Theinert Ranch are kept small, so that each trip can be customized to the needs and interests of that group. Our agility and flexibility allows us to better serve our members.

Our goal is to create a sense of community at Strongpoint Theinert Ranch that allows our participants to come away stronger than they arrived with newfound energy and friendships to improve their overall quality of life.

Strongpoint Theinert Ranch is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and is entirely funded by donations. There is no charge for veterans, veteran families, or Gold Star families to visit the Ranch.

Program Variations


STR 001, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9

Veterans Strongpoint 

Our foundational program that serves to bring together veterans from all over the country in the therapeutic environment of The Ranch to share their stories of service, sacrifice, and what they want their legacy to be. 


STR 10

Youth Leadership SP

Aiming to teach area youth about leadership, service, and sacrifice STR pairs Veteran Facilitators with high school and college aged students for a rigorous five day program.  


STR 8 & 12

Unit Specific Strongpoint

When a military unit is hit with a particularly challenging event, be it: mass casualties, suicide epidemic, or having lost connection with each other. This shared Strongpoint can serve as a catalyst for healing.



Backcountry Strongpoint

With nearly one million acres of National Forest in our backyard it would be a shame not to explore it.  More physically challenging, but just as healing, as a traditional Strongpoint



Gold Star Mothers

As a family who lost someone in service to our country, we understand the pain and challenges it can cause.  We were honored to host a group of Gold Star Mothers to come to The Ranch and offer healing opportunities.


Partnered with Mashomack Preserve

Strongpoint Reunion

When a veteran returns home from a Strongpoint the work continues as they involve their family in the healing process.  Reunions allow us to integrate veterans and families.
