In this July 16, 2014 photo, Jan and Terry Blumberg, left, talk with Richard and Mary Dunkley during lunch at Blum’s Landing in Ocqueoc Township, Mich. The Blumbergs used benefits and insurance money from their son Trevor's 2003 death in Iraq to help build Blum’s Landing. Now in its third year, the two-story home serves as a retreat for those fighting the war on terror. Veterans can stay at Blum’s Landing free of charge for up to five days. Richard Dunkley earned his family’s stay by serving in Afghanistan. (AP Photo/Mike Householder)
