Camp Resiliance honored by Military Officers of America



Camp Resilience, the Lakes Region-based veterans support group nonprofit, was recently honored by the NH Chapter of the Military Officers of America (MOAA) with the presentation of MOAA’s Annual Granite State Warriors Award. This award, presented at the annual luncheon at Portsmouth Country Club, was given in recognition of the ongoing work of the dedicated volunteers of Camp Resilience “in providing unique services designed to improve the quality of life for our military forces and their families.”

In his remarks to the audience, MOAA Chapter President Warren Coulter, Captain, USN (Ret.) cited the more than 250 veterans and their spouses impacted by Camp Resilience since its founding in 2014.

Camp Resilience was nominated for this honor by MOAA member Commander Bruce Avery, USN (Ret) who had learned of the work being done by the Camp Resilience volunteers.

Included with the award presentation were congratulatory letters for Camp Resilience from U.S. Sens. Maggie Hassan and Jeanne Shaheen. Also honored at the luncheon were the DV Farm of Gilsum and the weapons manufacturer Sig Sauer of Newington.
