Avet is an amazing organization that goes above and beyond the call of duty. They are on 24/7 helping all in need. They work together with people in all areas of military but also help those not in as well. They truly appreciate their volunteers and work with business and people who support them. Thank you AVET

Our Daughter of the American Revolution Chapter, here in Melbourne Beach Florida, is always on the look out to help our Active Duty and Local Veterans. AVET Project is our GO To organization. They have the knowledge of where to direct our VETS to services that are available to them. They are the BEST for planning local events to honor our Active Duty, no matter what their branch of service is. We look forward to jumping in the help in anyway we can. A truly SPECIAL organization. We here in Brevard County Florida are so fortunate to have a LOCAL group to be a part of. Thanks Kim and Garren Cone for your tireless efforts to make a difference in our community-

I am a Vietnam vet who volunteers with this group. Every penny in, goes out to support
active duty personnel, veterans, and their families. Avet has a host of core programs
designed to help empower our nations greatest resource; its "people", our families, our service personnel reintegrate into society after service to our country. They educate active duty
personnel, support them with care packages when in country and for the ones that come home
with broken bodies and damaged minds, they guide them to regain their lives and dignity as they continue to contribute to our country's prosperity as civilians. I wish they were around during my
era of coming home. This group makes a difference every day! Steven Rasbach

I have volunteered with AVET Project for 5 yrs. My name is Alice Kreitz. This year, I had the pleasure of being Mrs. Santa Claus at countless Christmas dinners; childrens' parties; gift wrapping sessions; toy runs; serving the deployed from our area of the Space Coast; and meeting the returning men and women at Patrick Air Force Base who have been defending America in dangerous places. I feel as if the AVET Project does more for the current and retired military men & women than any other vets group in central Fl. I also attended the cruise in Nov., which was a time when the married couples could reunite without their children and get some much needed R & R and also speak to registered Psychologists and social workers and other individuals who would listen to them share their inner feelings.

The directors have dedicated their lives to the well being of the military and work as volunteers. Other groups pay their directors large salaries, and I'm truly not sure what they do in this area.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

If I were able to donate a lot of $$$$ to AVET Project, I would because I would like to see the directors spend LESS time having to scrounge of every penny they need to supply the military folks with the food and services they richly deserve. Doesn't seem right that one vets group gets millions and another one who seemingly does so much, gets ZERO. Makes NO sense to me. Alice Kreitz, constant volunteer.

My name is Denise Farias and i cannot say enough about Avet Project. I volunteer for lots of organizations and Avet is by far the best. Their passion and energy to help the military is unbelievable. They are great stewards with the donations and deeply care for everyone they help. I am very proud to work with such an amazing couple and only hope to be a part of the Avet Project for many years to come

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would ask that they get more donations as for what they do for our troops is never enough

Our unit, 715th MP CO, was recently deployed to the 'sandbox'. AVET showed up right behind 1SG and myself to get started on cooking breakfast for the troops and their families. They gave us all a good breakfast and then passed out donations from other organizations to make sure our troops were well feed. They, and our troops were escorted by the Patriot Guard to the Airport and given a special departure. We then have pictures from the AVET website to share of our troops as they left us for FT. Bliss. This meant so much to families and I cannot thank them enough. REspectfully, FRG Chairperson, Deborah Yevtich

Make them more of a household name while educating about their purpose.

I really enjoy voluntering with Avet, the thanks WE Receive from enlisted personnel when we feed them meals always brings me to tears. The little we do is nothing compared to what they do for us. Through Avet we not only get to give back, but we receive a wonderfull warmth to our soul for making a small difference in someones life.
Not only have we enjoyed voluntering but we also love the great oportunity to experience so many things that as a normal person we would not get to see. The technology, the behind the door activity at the space center and the many different jobs our service men do. Thanks for these opportunities. I would encourage others to volunteer for this great organization. Avet Project.

My wife and I started with A-Vet Project about 4 years ago. We were just going to help out on a few things and see what they were all about. Since meeting Garren and Kim and seeing the dedication they have in helping not only the troops, but all in need, we fell in love with this outfit. I can't even begin to guess on how many things we have been involved with. From putting on dinners at the base ( too many to count), ridding in countless biker events, working with great organizations like Rolling Thunder, Extreme Makeover, the Brevard Toy Run, etc. We have been in contact with troops overseas, sending packages as often as possible. Going on escorts to the airports and celebrating those coming home and riding with the Patriot Guard and escorting those who gave all. It has been a wonderful experience and we will continue to do what we can to help out......Sonny Hartwell

The AVET Project under the wonderful guidance hands on Garren & Kim Cone have such a wide reaching impact on the military and their families through not only our local community but far beyond. They are untiring in their efforts and deserve all the respect that we have for them and more. We are blessed that they have come into our lives.
