ARMS was founded in 2003 by a group of dedicated volunteers who wanted to give something back to the military and their families. The organization is administered and operated by a compassionate team of non-salaried volunteers comprised of veterans, blue star mothers and a host of caring Americans, whose main goal is to honor and support our military and their families for all that they do to preserve and protect our freedom..
In the past ten years this small grass roots organization has grown from just a handful to more than 325 volunteers throughout the tri-state area, who have played a crucial role in our ability to provide meaningful services and initiatives in support of our troops, whether they be preparing to deploy, currently serving abroad or returning home.
To become the foremost non-profit, charitable services provider of military support in NJ, and ensure that our men and women in uniform are properly recognized and remembered for the sacrifices and hardships they and their families endure, before, during and after their deployments. Our goal is to continue to provide meaningful services and “Care Packages” for every service member we support.
