To provide support to the individuals and families affected by cancer and military service
The Minton Lodge is a beautiful retreat home previously owned and lived-in by Josh Minton. He always enjoyed having guests and ensured he would have enough space for everyone.
The property is surrounded by 49 wooded acres in Aberdeen, Ohio, only a few miles away from the Ohio River and Kentucky border. The house offers a peaceful and quiet setting to get away to. We welcome anyone affected by cancer, active duty and veterans of the armed services, and their family members.
Josh Minton entered the military in 2006, graduated from West Point in 2010 where he played collegiately for the Army Rugby team. He completed a deployment to Afghanistan in 2012-2013 with Bravo Battery, 4th Battalion, 319th Field Artillery Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team and medically retired from the Army in 2018. He was awarded the Army Ranger Tab, Combat Action Badge, Parachutist Badge, Bronze Star Medal, Meritorious Service Medal and three Army Achievement Medals.
At 27, he was diagnosed with a rare and incurable form of neuroendocrine cancer, after which he became very active with the Ulman Foundation and Ruck to Remember, a 60-mile march from Harper’s Ferry to Arlington National Cemetery. He chose to live life to its fullest over the next 5 years – however cancer took his body at the age of 32. His legacy continues to live on through his foundation and the Minton Lodge.
