David Keefe, the Director of Combat Paper New Jersey in the Printmaking Center of New Jersey said, "We provide the workshops for service members and veterans where they can turn their uniforms into paper and on that paper they can create any type of artwork they want.  They can do print making, drawing, writing, or painting, and it's a way for them to get their stories out."

Renee Priore and her service puppy in training, Champ, are frequent visitors at the USO Warrior and Family Center at Fort Belvoir. The Center and its many guests help Priore socialize Champ, who came to her through a nonprofit organization called Canine Companions for Independence.
