The New Hampshire Chapter of Rolling Thunder Inc., the national nonprofit group, recently made a generous donation to help fund the veteran support activities of Camp Resilience. The N.H. Chapter is based in Epping.

While the primary mission of Rolling Thunder Inc., is to publicize and promote understanding of the POW-MIA issue, the group also has a corollary mission of providing support for any veteran. “I was fortunate enough to attend a Camp Resilience retreat a few months ago” said Rolling Thunder Inc., member and Vice President Scott “Too Tall” Suchovsky “and I greatly admired what the group is doing to help veterans who have suffered the visible and invisible wounds of war,” he added. Suchovsky shared his feelings about Camp Resilience with other members of his chapter and coordinated the recent donation. Camp Resilience provides three- to four-day retreats for military veterans, at no cost to the vet, in the beautiful Lakes Region. Activities include peer-to-peer counseling, life skills seminars and recreational/sports team building events.

“We’re delighted to receive this support from our brothers in the N.H. Chapter of Rolling Thunder Inc. It is a prime example of how veterans look out for each other,” said Camp Resilience co-founder Kurt Webber. The gift comes as the parent organization of Camp Resilience, The Patriot Resilient Leader Institute, is starting a fundraising drive to enable it to provide more sessions to meet the increasing needs of our veteran population.
