Events taking place in Iraq and Syria stirred our Founding Members to action in November of 2014. Since then, by striving to bring real change to the ways the world responds to conflict and disaster scenarios, the 1st NAEF has continued its growth as a highly capable peace support operations and aid delivery organization. 

We are an international group of both veterans and humanitarians, bound together in common interest, and dedicated to using our skills and talents towards making the world a better place for all. We help those in need of medical, humanitarian and aid services, and to provide education and capacity building that assists local populations to survive free of violence and oppressive acts. We serve fellow veterans and first responders by offering purposeful work that builds on their foundation of service.
