Sunset Ferry Cruise
Join us on Saturday, September 24 from 4 to 8 PM for a cruise aboard the 1LT Joe Theinert ferry vessel for an evening to celebrate Joe's life and raise funds to support the mission of Strongpoint Theinert Ranch.
The Barracks has Arrived!
Last year we set out to complete the construction of our barracks, and with your support, WE DID IT!
The dream of having a veterans specific structure at The Ranch is a long time coming. When Joe was killed 12 years ago, Strongpoint was just an idea; in the Winter of 2016 we decided we couldn't wait for the ideal facility so we hosted our first veterans program in our home.
Six years later we can proudly say we have a customized barracks for STR to call home. We could not have done it without your support and dedication to our mission of helping veterans Strengthen, Transition, and Reconnect.
Achieving this goal allows us to focus our energy on the quality programming we have been delivering to veterans for the last six years. The completion of the Barracks allows our work to continue on a larger scale. When fully furnished we will be able to seamlessly host groups of 20 at a time to make use of Strongpoint Theinert and all it has to offer.
As we move through the pandemic we are so excited to share this new facility with future participants. Our 2022 target is to deliver multiple Strongpoint programs using the barracks to serve the men and women who have served us all. Please consider making a tax deductible donation today to honor our nation's veterans, their service and sacrifice. We are in need of $50,000 to meet our target.
With an average cost of only $750 per participant your donation helps to make meaningful positive change in the life a military service member and their family.
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.

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.
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
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.

Even the roads at STR qualify as mountain biking paths, a great group activity.
The only traffic you'll find here is a tumbleweed or two.
Together we hike, work, grow and improve.
