THE STORY:

The Bets for Vets casino night at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will help the Museum continue and expand its new programming for military service members and their families.

The overall goal of these programs is to provide a safe, understanding environment for veterans, especially those with post-traumatic stress (PTS/PTSD) or traumatic brain injury (TBI). Structured social opportunities at the Museum can build a sense of community for those making the difficult transition back to civilian and family life. By welcoming veterans from a wide range of experiences, the Museum acts as a bridge for individuals to share their own stories and forge connections.
