Why We Give
The veterans of our military services have put their lives on the line to protect the freedoms that we enjoy. They have dedicated their lives to their country and deserve to be recognized and supported for their commitment. All of us believe and understand in the fabric of the common bond of why we call ourselves American is to care for the men and women who wear the uniform; and when they take off the uniform, we care for them when they are veterans.
Nicole Phillips- CEO, President Envision Health Partners
The Joshua Chamberlain Society honors the sacrifices of those who have dedicate their lives to serving our country. Often, those sacrifices lead to long-term health problems and disabilities where quality of life can be forever altered. The JCS provides solutions to these problems and works with local supporters to ensure our veterans are not forgotten. The integrity of their mission and their genuine commitment to providing individual solutions to optimize quality of life keeps the mission of our company aligned with theirs. As a skilled healthcare provider, we are honored to work with the JCS to ensure our veterans are not only resourced, but also recognized as heroes in our community. Envision has been honored to be a founding sponsor of the Bike for Heroes event and look forward to continuing our support of the JCS mission and the JCS Heroes.

I was not in the Military. I don’t own a gun and until just recently, at last year’s “Shoot for the Troops Event” – I had never even shot a gun.
My wife and I were brought up where each day started with the “Pledge of Allegiance” in school, we proudly flew the American flag on patriotic holidays, valued our elders and were basically, kind to one another.
That being said, the pride, camaraderie, and gratitude that takes place among the supporters, volunteers and Heroes of the Joshua Chamberlain Society is something everyone should experience. My words here cannot possibly convey the true meaning – but when you’re at an event, you will see it in their eyes… and feel it in your heart. This is something very special. We are honored to support the mission of JCS and the JCS Heroes.
My name is Jeff Netherton, and I live in St. Paul, MO with my wife Barb. I am a graduate of Missouri State and postgraduate of Washington University, Olin School of Business. We have transferred around the US for Graybar four times in my 25+ year career, but have been back in St. Louis since 2010.
I was introduced to the JCS about 9-years ago at the Sporting Clay Shoot through work affiliations with NAI DESCO and ARCO Construction. Coming from a military family, but never serving myself, I was immediately drawn to the efforts and support this charity was providing. I was humbled meeting some of the hero’s knowing and seeing the sacrifice they gave to this country. I am fortunate to work for a great company, Graybar, who supported my request to help sponsor the JCS.

The Joshua Chamberlain Society would like to recognize those businesses that support our mission of caring for the most traumatically wounded heroes in our communities. We understand that without that support we would not be able to complete our mission. You are truly patriotic. On behalf of our JCS Heroes, thank you!
