Hero’s and Caregiver’s Networks

We are taking applications for our new Hero’s and Caregiver’s Networks. The “Hero’s and Caregiver’s Networks” is a companion program to the counseling scholarship program. The Networks will be an open-ended peer program with expert led sessions on topics determined by members of each network. Each class contains an experiential “fun” component.

Additionally, each network member will be paired with a trained peer for added support.

If you are interested please call Anna Tanzilla at atanzilla@camaraderiefoundation.org or (407) 841-0071

C.O.M.B.A.T. 

(Coalition of Military Bikers Against Trauma)

The C.O.M.B.A.T. initiative is a united “call to arms” expressing an immeasurable scale and worth of a veteran brotherhood and sisterhood belonging to a motorcycle association or club in the fight to eliminate the invisible wounds of war.

Thank you to The Bunker for hosting the Inaugural Ride, Dee Jones for her powerful words of encouragement, and Eric Flores for creating this initiative.

We would like to recognize three new basic memberships – Paul Dillman, Richard Templin, Cari Templin and one new bronze member Roger Holsapple.
