Operation Chillout c/o Anthony F. DeStefano MAJ, USAR (Ret)

Major (Retired) Anthony F. "Tony" DeStefano is an Army veteran of 24 years Reserve Service with Active Duty during the Post 9/11 period in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.  

His interest in the plight of homeless veterans led him to join in the work at OPERATION CHILLOUT in the year 2004.  He has risen in the organization to become the Homeless Veterans Outreach Coordinator.  Having been a professional musician for years prior to his ARMY service, he was drawn to the promotion of the three musical events undertaken so far. The Inaugural OPERATION CHILLOUT Homeless Veterans Benefit Concert in 2011, held at the famous Stanhope House, was a great success -as was the second Annual OCO HVBC the following year.  

This year we are expanding greatly on the concept and moving outdoors to a festival atmosphere and a much bigger event.  We sincerely thank all who are helping, promoting, sponsoring, and attending VETS SUMMER FEST 2013.  Over 7500 homeless veterans in New Jersey are waiting for our supportive services and rescue... all BECAUSE OPERATION CHILLOUT WAS THERE!
