Our troops deserve a place to call their own.

This is especially true today, as they shoulder the burden of operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. When they return from their tours of duty, our soldiers need a family-friendly place to rest and recuperate and reintegrate back to civilian life. We are looking for working office space and storage for our project. Please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

We would like to give them Patriot Hills.

Patriot Hills of New York’s site selection committee is researching all possibilities in New York state for our project. Patriot Hills will give our troops a haven to reconnect with family and enjoy a well-deserved respite from the stress of battle. It will also provide a spectrum of services—from massage to marriage enrichment, stress management to job placement—to smooth the difficult path of reintegration into civilian life.

Our troops deserve no less.support
We can give it to them…
with your help.

The New York National Guard Job Zone was established in November 2011 to provide a single source point of contact to facilitate the distribution of employment opportunities throughout the State of New York to our Service Members and their Families. The sources of employment come from federal, state, and civilian employers who seek the attributes associated with military service. It is also the duty of the NYNG Job Zone to partner with the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Program, Department of Labor (DOL) and the wide array of civilian employers who seek the talents of our Service Members.

The Mission of the New York National Guard Job Zone

The New York National Guard Job Zone’s primary mission is to serve as a focal point for job opportunities for our Service Members throughout New York State and facilitate employer partnering with our program, through posting of job fairs and individual employment opportunities on our website, face to face and electronic communication with employers and a constant liaison with the Department of Labor and the NYESGR Committee.

The Vision of the New York National Guard Job Zone

The goal of the New York National Guard Job Zone is to increase the number of employed, decrease the number of underemployed Service Members and their Families, and build a robust network of private businesses in support of Service Members and their Families throughout New York State. Over one million Service Members are projected to leave the military between 2011-2018. This single data point underscores the importance of linking Veterans to critical support and outreach sources.

 Thank you for making the inaugural 9/11 Heroes Run in Saratoga Springs a great success!

We had 307 runners cross the 5k finish line and a nice showing for the 1-mile family fun run/walk. Over $15,000 was raised and after race expenses are taken out, all proceeds will go to the Travis Manion Foundation and Patriot Hills of NY, Inc. 

Finish Right Timing did a great job getting everyone's chip time. The results are posted here: http://www.finishright.com/ROAD/ROAD%202013/91113.htm


Soldier Hard - Red Flags Addressing Veterans Suicide Issue (Official Video)

VA's new Hotline For Women Veterans

The Department of Veterans Affairs has launched a new hotline—1-855-VA-WOMEN (1-855-829-6636) — to receive and respond to questions from Veterans, their families and caregivers about the many VA services and resources available to women Veterans. The service began accepting calls on March 27, 2013.

“Some women Veterans may not know about high-quality VA care and services available to them,” said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki.


Team Red, White and Blue Community

What runners and the community experienced in Boston a week ago, is the exact same thing that hundreds of thousands of service members have experienced in Iraq and Afghanistan over the past decade.

In the chaotic aftermath of the bombing, Team Red, White & Blue members from across the country began posting on Facebook a photo and a short video of a Team RWB veteran who turned his RWB shirt into a tourniquet. This action reminded us of the positive things happening amid the evil. It also put the spirit of Team RWB on full display for millions of Americans to see.

We had 17 Team RWB athletes who ran in the Boston Marathon last Monday, including, veterans, active duty and non-military. Thankfully, none of them were injured, but each is forever changed. Within a few hours of the attacks, our organization committed to responding to the evil and pain with hope, strength and optimism. We did this by organizing "Team RWB response runs" across the country in over 45 cities. This video captures Team Red, White & Blue communities in action and we encourage you to share this with others.

Please let them know about what we do and why---and encourage them to learn about our Team.

Thanks for your support.
Mike Erwin
Chairman and Founder
