The Caisson Platoon Equine Assisted Program is no longer conducting lessons.
Since May 2006 CPEAP has served more than 300 wounded warriors and veterans. It has been a wonderful program, supported by the U.S. Army, The Old Guard, The Caisson Platoon, Walter Reed NMMC and the NICoE TBI Clinic at Fort Belvoir.
We have enjoyed serving our wounded warriors and their families. Thank you for your support. Please continue to support our American service men and women.
Following is a brief summary of CPEAP’s mission and history:
The Caisson Platoon Equine Assisted Programs is a civilian all-volunteer organization dedicated to providing equine-assisted activities for Wounded Warriors and Veterans. The Caisson Platoon Equine Assisted Programs are not an organization of the U.S. Army.
Begun in May 2006 at Fort Myer, Virginia, the Caisson Platoon Equine Assisted Programs presently conducts lessons at the Caisson Platoon training area on Fort Belvoir, serving the National Intrepid Centers of Excellence Traumatic Brain Injury Clinic, and at Rock Creek Park, serving Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and the DC Veterans Administration.
To be a leading organization facilitating the availability of equine-assisted activities for Wounded Warriors and Veterans with physical wounds, traumatic brain injury (TBI), or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) by integrating volunteerism, fundraising, and activities to best serve the Wounded Warrior and Veteran populations.
