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 outdoor sporting events and therapeutic outdoor activities for New England veterans, current service members, and their families.
After a 5 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.
