Darrell Chaloult founder and Chairman of the Boardof Directors, along with Bruce, bought the Camp and had a vision to use the property to help others who were struggling. Darrell and Bruce set up the VBC nonprofit organization, promoted and encouraged the development of an organization that would help veterans, first responders, their families and the community to come together to work synergistically to tackle the challenges that our heroes face as a result of their service to us all.
Bruce, a successful businessman and owner of Maneeley's Banquet and Catering Business in South Windsor, partnered with Darrell to buy the property to be used to help those who serve. He has supported the Camp financially and has catered many a function at the Camp and at his restaurant, and always donated it all to benefit, support and promote Veterans Base Camp.
Christina Mazzone, served as Vice Chairwoman, worked tirelessly to research, create, support and promote Veterans Base Camp. Her expertise is in IT Technology, specifically IT Security. Her ability to keep the mission focused, her calm manner, business expertise and her support has been invaluable.
