My name is Todd Crevier and I am a retired Sergeant First Class with the US Army. I served in the US Army for 10 years, I have two combat tours (one to Iraq 2004 and one to Africa 2013), and I am a disabled veteran. I retired from the Army in October of 2014 and in November of 2014 I started a veterans nonprofit organization called New England Adventures. New England Adventures provides all expense paid trips for veterans and their families to the wild places of New England.
After a 4 year long addiction to pain meds prescribed by the VA to help manage my various conditions, I knew that the path to healing my wounds would not be found in a bottle of meds but in the fields and forests of New England.
I grew up in New England and I have been an outdoorsman my whole life. I am a living testament to the healing powers of being connected to the wild world around us. Some of the most spiritual experiences I have ever had in my life have been when I could get away to the beautiful and wild places of New England.
After my time in the Army had concluded I knew in my heart that my time of serving would continue. In New England Adventures I found that I could combine two passions; my passion for veterans and their families and my passion for being outdoors. New England Adventures’ mission is reconnecting veterans to each other and to encourage a love of and desire to protect the wild places of New England.
New England Adventures is growing and I am encouraged by the events we have hosted so far and I am excited to see what the future holds for us.
