Our team provides monthly care packages to a support group made up of troops from the Army, Air Force and Marines that are deployed overseas. Due to the drawback, our servicemen do not have
access to full base facilities. We will be supporting them throughout their
deployment and need your help in providing some of the items they need. We also send care packages to BNL employee’s family members! Just recently we were
supporting two soldiers from Mattituck who have returned.
We always need supplies to send. See the list below of requested itmes. In addition, we are always in need of funds for postage.
If you can help, please send your monetary donations to:
Brookhaven Veterans Association (BVA)

Donation boxes are located in the following buildings: 400 Lobby,

I just wanted to reach out and say thank you for the packages you guys have provided to the team out here.
It's really appreciated. The looks on their faces when I open boxes and tell them it's from my home area and for the whole group is priceless.
This last package was enjoyed rather quickly! Attached is a photo of some of the group that has been around in the Logistics Shop that you guys are helping out.
Again, Thank you for everything you guys do!

Passing the Hat for the Troops! A group in
Portsmouth, NH does this and we thought it would be nice for us to do
for the platoon we are supporting. The idea is to knit or crochet helmet
liners using wool because it is warmer, safer and less flammable. Dark
colors like green, brown, navy are good so that the caps blend in with
uniforms and dark clothing. If you know how to knit or crochet and
would like to make a helmet liner to donate to our platoon,
