Rest and Recuperation

Once a military member returns from duty in a
combat zone, AVET Project selects applicants
on a first come, first served basis to participate
in a retreat where they, and a spouse or
significant other, can decompress, relax, and reconnect with one another. Our AVET Project
staff instructs about reintegration issues, coping methods, and relaxation skills, as well as offer stress mediation techniques. While not
structured to the point of being a classroom scenario, an itinerary is followed so the participant can choose to partake or simply skip a topic, if desired. A certified hypnotherapist counselor assists each participant in dealing with unresolved issues. Airfare, ground transportation, meals, lodging, and recreational opportunities are provided absolutely FREE.

Empowerment Equipment Bags

This free program delivers “turbo charged” care and convenience packages to our troops on the front lines of Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere. EEB’s provide all the essentials such as toiletries, socks, snacks, DVD/CD’s, magazines, books, games, sunscreen/lip balm, hand-warmers, and gender specific personal product items, however, EEB’s go a step further. AVET Project efforts to teach our military members the importance of daily journaling by providing materials and instructions on how to begin this worthwhile habit. aplogo2013

Entertainment and Recreation

Performing and listening to music lowers stress levels by providing an avenue for expressing emotions. It’s also a fallback and healthy distraction from pain. Music can even induce physical changes, lowering heart rate, tension, and blood pressure. The effects are strongest if the person plays music because playing gives them a sense of control, a boost of

confidence, and an overall feeling of enjoyment through the release of endorphins. Soldier Hard, the founder of Redcon-1 Music Group couldn’t agree more.
