Name: Matthew Burke
Organization Name: 10Can, Inc.
Address: PO BOX 1122

We Are 10 CAN, inc. Saving Heroes… Raising Warriors… Restoring Hope…Through Faith, Family, & the Great Outdoors.

The storm stirred deep inside, and nobody knew what he could hide. The turmoil and chaos held within, laid in wait after the battles’ end. The warrior should have received a hero’s death, but instead he destroys all that’s left. Empty of faith, void of feeling, nothing was available that could offer healing. Poked and prodded and given the gauntlet, everyone fears the unknown and haunted. But one rose above them all, after receiving a Heavenly call. To serve and protect those in need, began a mission of purpose indeed. To bridge a gap and create a link, between families who fight and those who think. Welcome to the rise of 10 CAN, Inc. – Dr. Matthew R. Burkee

Do you believe there’s a cure for PTSD? Neither did we. Until recently, Post-Traumatic Stress was considered the most complex phenomena of the mind. Treatment plans reflected this belief, with overly complex formulas and high doses of medication(s). But the continuous rise in warrior suicides prompted innovative change. In such, 10 CAN was born

10 CAN, Inc. is the Christian Adventure Network founded by a wounded warrior to serve military and first responder families. We are a nonprofit 501(c) (3) charitable organization designed to save heroes, raise the next generation of warriors, and restore families through the great outdoors. Our focus on outdoor recreation, education, and rehabilitation fosters healing, prevents suicides, and builds community. Our faith-based approach is non-religious and encompasses a fit-to-fight model for the entire family. Spiritual well-being, mental health, and physical abilities establish a diverse and well-rounded approach for our Heroes and their families.

Our simplified solution with dynamic resolve has a 100% success rate in suicide prevention. In his book Saving Heroes, Dr. Burke provides the formula to the working cure. You’ll note that treating the variety of traumatic stresses requires a fitted approach for each warrior. With childhood roots and nature being the main ingredients, it’s imperative that we aim to be proactive in medicine.

We are a church of sorts, using the outdoors as our sanctuary for spiritual healing and growth. Our model of ministry is action driven, adventurous, and often vicarious. Bridging the gap between the Church and Warriors is a vital part of the cure. Faith is the antiseptic for moral wounds. Without it, we’re merely pacifying. The diversity of military and first responder families require a variety of outreach programs. Although Hunting, Fishing, and Survival are our three main programs, we’re not limited in scope of service.

We aim to create purpose-driven, resilient, healthy warriors ready to positively impact their community and country. We empower post-traumatic growth by offering Spiritual Combat Training. The Rite of Passage helps youth draw a line in the sand to mark their transformation into emerging adulthood. Revivals replace retreats because we refuse to run and hide. Disaster and Crisis Response, fields critical needs across the Nation. Agri-therapy teaches to create life, rather than destroy it. And Hoorah Therapy reaches those warriors who don’t benefit from soft therapies (I.E. Yoga, talking, art, etc.).

We evangelize through action, adventure, and the great outdoors. We believe that a solid childhood foundation equates to effective and resilient adulthood. This is a proactive approach to solving the medical phenomena of PTSD, reducing criminal behavior, and changing the world through our backyard. We enhance the quality of life for our Heroes by bridging the family gap created during combat; empower self-healing through faith and purpose; and develop future warriors who are equipped to handle Secondary Traumatic Stress and Post-Traumatic Stress. While the most effective healing happens at home, it is a strong root system that keeps a tree standing through the storm.

History of Our Name
Divinely inspired, “10 CAN” represents the number of life elements we require to be whole. Imagine a 10-spoke wheel. If one spoke is broken, the entire wheel is off balance. So goes life. Fortunately, God has given us a checkbox simple solution.

It’s an honor to work with businesses, organizations, churches, ministries, schools, government agencies, and individuals of various backgrounds. We are not bound by political or religious thresholds and reach deep into the heart of communities where others are unable to go. Partnerships allow us to provide our expertise in hosting adventures, while leaning on partners for service referrals.

To save heroes, raise warriors, and restore families through the great outdoors.

To create a global outreach of volunteers empowered to prevent suicides and heal moral wounds. To develop relationships between Warriors and Jesus Christ.
To raise public leaders who are conservation minded, strong in character, and compassionate for one another. To diversify the outdoors with women, youth, and minorities. To give warriors purpose, meaning, and reason. To motivate wounded military and first responder personnel through outdoor
ministry. To enrich the lives of children through diversity in the outdoors. To promote impact-driven adolescents through a Wilderness Survival Rite of Passage. And to demonstrate that God is mightier than your storm.

Centralize and consolidate a coalition of service organizations that disabled warriors can easily navigate.
Launch Chapters around the world through churches., military instillations, and first responder departments. Cure PTSD and prevent suicides. Defeat hate, corruption, greed, lust, and envy through love, adventure, and world peace.

Name: Joseph LaBranche
Business/Organization Name: AboutFace-USA, Inc.
Address: 4920 Atlanta Hwy., #403
Alpharetta, GA 30004 United States
Phone: 404-862-2141

AboutFace-USA® Training Village
We turn lives around for Veterans, First Responders and their Families by providing peer-led, confidential counseling and powerful resources.

The founder of AboutFace‐USA® is Joe LaBranche, a Marine Veteran who served our country for two years, at age 20 in 1966, and received two Purple
Heart medals due to being wounded in the Vietnam jungles. His injuries healed and he returned to combat.

When Joe’s service came to an end, he returned to the states and within 72 hours was back to civilian life in Detroit, Michigan. Joe’s Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) symptoms were clearly showing but mental health services were limited and the stigma of needing help was extreme. His symptoms showed up as bad behaviors and addictions throughout his adult life and affected his relationships with his spouse and children, his community and spiritual leaders and with his employers and co‐workers. It took Joe over 40 years to get the courage to seek help for his PTS symptoms. Now, Joe knows that mental health treatments, therapies and medications can work.

Our Mission
To encourage and empower veterans, first responders, and their family members to turn their lives around for the better.

While Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) symptoms can be mild to extreme, and they can come and go without rational explanations, PTS can interfere with  relationships, employment, and even daily decisions. PTS does not have to be combat related, but certainly trauma has been experienced or witnessed by those who suffer from PTS symptoms. It is time to get past the stigma and confront our mental health concerns.

According to the Disabled Veterans National Foundation: An estimated 1 in 5 veterans of all eras suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and/or depression. More than a quarter million OEF/OIF veterans suffer from traumatic brain injury (TBI). Approximately 53% of homeless veterans have disabilities. In addition, more than half of the homeless veteran population in the United States has a mental disability.

AboutFace‐USA® is a peer-led community organization existing, as an initial point of contact, to empower and encourage veterans, first‐responders and their families to find help. We provide support services, activities and resources geared toward understanding mental health so that they can
cope better, improve their relationships, and change the direction of their future for the better.

Mission Statement: Travel the United States of America with the Cost of Freedom Tribute and Traveling Vietnam Wall. Support Veterans, their family members and Veteran causes through our non-profit – The Texas Freedom Tribute (501c3).

Our Story
AVTT was originally formed in 1998. After several owners it was purchased and reformed in 2005 by Retired Lieutenant Colonel Don Allen (US Army and Vietnam Veteran) and his wife Dr. Barb Allen. When LTC Don Allen retired from the Army he had a calling that drew him to doing something for fellow veterans. He utilized his talents in the very beginning by literally running a one-man show (fabrication, marketing and setting up shows). As time pressed forward, the need for forward and upward growth was imminent.

In 2019, the doors were opened to our current location in Bullard, Texas. We have expanded from our original product to now offering tributes from every major conflict from World War I until today.

American Veterans Traveling Tribute (AVTT) is a multi-division Nationally recognized Veteran owned and operated small business. Our 80% Traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall, has been part of more than 300 events across the United States over the last 15 years.

*Booking and traveling the US with our Traveling Tribute.
*Continually developing additional exhibits for the Tribute.
*Developing and providing our exhibits to individuals, organizations and communities.

*Designs and markets products that celebrate America, Patriotism and Military Service.
*Maintain our culture of honoring those who serve and praising those who support them.

Rockville, MD 209853
United States
Phone: +1 – 3012338882

Founded in 2004 at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, we now offer weekly paddling sessions in more than 60  locations across the nation. Team River Runner (TRR) is more than an adaptive sports program; it is an opportunity for veterans, their family members, and everyone in the community to participate

It’s an opportunity to enjoy nature and realize its social, physical, and emotional benefits, whether it’s tackling whitewater rapids or paddling on peaceful flat-water. It’s an environment that facilitates connection, allowing veterans to reunite with their families and forge relationships with those who have endured similar pain. TRR creates purpose and community service. Our veterans are on the river to recovery.

TRR provides all boats, outfitting, safety gear, instruction, transportation, food and lodging for the participants and the volunteers through the generosity of their donors and the subsidies from their providers.

Each chapter:

  • Holds regular pool or open water sessions of approximately 2-3 hours each. Some sites offer multiple sessions per week;
  • Has a quarterly local trip and twice a year family days;
  • Encourages qualified paddlers from any site to participate in the national trips offered to Colorado, Idaho and the Caribbean.

At each event, a paddler gets a chance, in a safe environment, to:

  • Get physical exercise outside the boredom of the hospital;
  • Learn a potentially brand new skill, rather than struggle with a skill he used to be an expert at;
  • Overcome emotional roadblocks left by post traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury;
  • Practice basic cognitive sequencing by following small sets of instructions;
  • Bring his family into a new recreational hobby
  • Have fun!!

I’m Michael, but most call me Buzz. I am a disabled veteran who flew aboard the E3 Sentry AWACS for 10 years. I have built hundreds of websites over the last 20+ years, primarily using WordPress.

The one frustration I heard the most over the years was the time drain business owners encounter trying to keep their websites up to date so they run smoothly and the cost of getting the inevitable hack cleaned from their site code. So I decided to create a Managed WordPress hosting company that provides a guaranteed worry-free hosting experience.
