Phoenix Houses of New York’s Military Services Program was among the sponsors of the 3rd Annual Thanks Troops Golf Classic at Cherry Creek Golf Club in Riverhead, New York. Our staff had the pleasure of meeting many service men and women who have bravely sacrificed to serve our country; notable among these heroes was meeting Robert Emmett O’Malley, the first Marine Corps recipient of the Medal of Honor, the United States’ highest military decoration, for his service in the Vietnam War.
Phoenix House is proud to provide substance abuse, mental health, and support services specifically designed to address the unique experiences and challenges of the military community. Our clinical staffs are trained in the latest evidence-based practices for addressing Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, anger management, and other issues in an effort to assist our veterans to successfully readjust to civilian life.
Thanks Troops is a non-profit committed to helping combat wounded veterans by providing recreational opportunities that make the transition back to civilian life in the United States easier, as well as raising funds for various veterans organizations locally and nationally.
