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-
Wonderful supporter for our Veterans and their families.
They also support local schools in their 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.
As President of AVET Project, I am always humbled when I read and hear about how our "all volunteer" nonprofit truly does change the lives of those we serve.
While we operate 7 core programs and a host of ancillary ones, AVET Project's "Project Recuperation & Reintegration" (PR&R) retreat program MUST be a focus of ours in the coming year. Why, you ask? It's simple, really: PR&R changes the lives of our Post 9/11 warriors and their families. I personally invite everyone reading this to visit our website and associated social media pages - as well as listen to AMERICAN WARRIOR RADIO - to find out how PR&R accomplishes this!
WE NEED YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT to make our programs work, and if you can volunteer a few hours every month, we'll definitely put you to work supporting our troops!
May each and every American enjoy a wonderful 2014... just remember, it won't happen without the service and sacrifices of our military and their families. Please, help us help them. Visit our website and make a donation via our secure PayPal service NOW.

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
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
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.
My experience with AVET has been nothing but wonderful. The organization works hard on multiple projects simultaneously all supporting local veterans and active duty personnel. Using all their available resources AVET is able to provide quality services to servicemen & women in need. Our community needs were greater than could be filled prior to AVET's services. The vets in the area now have needed services and strong advocates.
As an military/ hip hop artist I came in contact with AVET Project by a close friend I mine. Once the meet and greet was over I noticed how genuinely they care about there veterans. Not only did Kim and Garren became good friends of me and my family, but Garren also helped me increased my VA claim percentage. Since then I have watched them help so many veterans overseas and stateside through care Packages and VA claims. I have recommended them to other veterans and they have done there best to help them. - SABO
My family and I just recently got involved with AVET Project, and we are thoroughly amazed! They seem to have endless energy and enthusiasm for helping veterans, families and active duty military. They do so much good, and we are honored to help them whenever we can. Not many people so focused on helping others. The world needs more Kim and Garrens!
