The Josh Pallotta Fund was created by a group of Veterans, family, and community members in memory of Joshua R. Pallotta. Josh was a member of the Vermont National Guard and deployed to Afghanistan in 2010. Upon his return home, he struggled with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and took his own life on September 23, 2014.
Following his death, the fund was started by the Blue Star Mothers of Vermont. This fund has grown and a plan is being developed to provide services for Veterans with PTSD that combines local and national resources, emergency resources, and research to provide Veterans the resiliency, transition, and reintegration tools that help them sustain or return to full and healthy lives. Due to the size of this project, the Josh Pallotta Fund is now a separate 501(c)3 nonprofit.
