Project Refit believes combating isolation by building the community of the future will reduce suicide rates among the military and first responder communities.

Mission

Here at Project Refit we are committed to a single mission: combat isolation.

Story

Project Refit's story begins in the valleys of Afghanistan in 2014. Daniel Lombard, Co-Founder of Project Refit, was involved in two IED explosions. The worst of his injuries were TBI and PTSD. But, there was another story, one of leadership, that had been unfolding for years before this. 

CSM Martin "Gunny" Barreras was Dan's, and thousands that served under him, most revered leader. He led from the front, still participating in combat operations even when he did not have to. His primary goal was to develop young men into leaders of tomorrow. Gunny Died of Wounds (DOW) on May 13, 2014.

This really had a negative impact on all of his men, current and past. 

Fast forward to 2017 when Dan and James talk about a new solution to help military personnel stay connected with one another. After a couple of years of testing, research, and modification, Project Refit has landed on its new strategy of the hybrid model, combine technology and in-person support to meet the modern military member and family where they are both online and off.

BEAT THE STIGMA

One Military Member (Past/Present) and First Responder at a time

Project Refit is looking to change the negative connotation around mental health.

Project Refit is doing this by helping implement and support simple, make sense programs for a military member (past/present) and first responder. We incorporate family into these programs, as well as, creating programs for only military and first responders.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Hey ... just wanna say thank you. Thank you for talking to me, listening to me and most importantly making me understand everything I have to look forward to. You were the only one who answered that night and I'm truly grateful. I never got to thank you and I just want you to know that you changed my life that night and I thank you soooooo much for that.

To calm down I talk to you at night. Other times a lady at the VA. When weather permits I fly fish. I have a "toolbox" of things I do, just gets overwhelming at times. Tonight you happen to be my choice. Used your phone number few months ago when shit got really bad. I just needed to calm down tonight after a bad time sleeping. Thanx for being here. I hate bothering people.

I opened up to my family because of your encouragement ... #breakthestigma

It's said soldiers are reborn in the military and their brothers and sisters are those they serve with. This family is important to them and losing touch can be difficult.

 

Project Refit is reuniting them.
