Azimuth Check Foundationhttp://azimuthcheckfoundation.org/ Azimuth Check Foundation of New England (ACFNE) helps active duty military, veterans, and first responders with disabilities by providing challenging year-round athletic activities. They directly sponsor and lend support to a number of events throughout the Northern New England region. All of the events provide an opportunity to show support for and raise money to support our warriors and their families.

Vermont Vet-to-Vet Program –  www.vtvettovet.org. Vermont Vet-to-Vet offers peer-to-peer support to veterans of all eras, including those who are now returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. It is essential for Veterans to be able to safely, and confidentially, talk about issues such as PTSD, depression, anxiety, substance use issues, family issues, bi-polar and borderline personalities disorders, and many other disorders and reoccurring illnesses. The importance of Vermont Vet-to-Vet peer support is that these Veterans will trust and talk to a fellow Veteran in most cases before they will a psychiatrist, psychologist, social worker, or VA doctor. Peers offer each other an understanding that comes from having experienced a similar situation or problem.
