Bravo Foxtrot is A.O.R.




A.O.R in the military is a common acronym for Area Of Responsibility typically a combat zone or mission-critical region where ROE exist.

Bravo Foxtrot United Veterans Inc. has a significant impact on the lives of veterans and their families in our community. Over the last decade, Matt Simoni and Jade Pinto, the founders of Bravo Foxtrot United Veterans Inc., have overcome complex obstacles, but their partnership has proven to be successful both in business and in the humanitarian sector. Jade’s artistic abilities and kind heart have brought unmatched integrity to all of their joint efforts. Matt’s capability to step in as someone who can help Jade balance her artistic skills with the sometimes unkind world of business has strengthened their relationship. Because of their past life stories, along with their talents and compassion, this extraordinary couple found a critical void in the services offered to veterans in need. They filled it by establishing Bravo Foxtrot United Veterans Inc., a not-for-profit organization that offers aid to traumatized veterans that have been forgotten by the system, and by society. As Jade and Matt always say; “support your community and support your veterans.”

Long Island Veteran FAQs

Do you have questions about Bravo Foxtrot and the help that is needed for our veterans?

What services does Bravo Foxtrot provide veterans?

The assistance we provide includes essentials such as food, clothing, hygiene products, talk groups, virtual meetings, and advocacy. In addition, Bravo Foxtrot is sponsored by Fusco Branstein and Rada law firm in order to provide the deserved legal aid for these veterans and to fulfill the “financial stability” aspect of their mental health/social status recovery.

How are the donations used?

Bravo Foxtrot United Veterans Inc. was formed for the purpose of establishing a residential program(s) that will provide temporary stable housing and holistic therapy (meditation, self-awareness, mind/body/spirit cohesion, etc.) to veterans in order to facilitate their successful reintegration back into their families and communities.

Bravo Foxtrot is approved by the OTDA (Office of Temporary Disability and Assistance) to house 20 or more veterans (known as an adult shelter). Our goal is to implement this in the form of temporary and stable housing in a rural or semi-rural area. Healing modalities such as meditation in motion (by working with plants and the land), working with animals, meditation, and other holistic means will be heavily promoted as well as veering off traditional Western medication as a sole treatment plan.

The donations received go to fulfilling this mission.

After operating costs, 100% of all donations go to assisting veterans! The Board of Directors are all volunteers and do not receive salaries.
