The Protzmann Award is given in loving memory of Brigadier General Carol Protzmann in recognition of NH people who go above and beyond to help meet the needs of those who serve in America's force. Military families were a strong priority of General Protzmann and this award encompasses those in our communities who embrace the lifelong nature of service and the impacts it can have on entire family units.
The Protzmann Awards are presented by the New Hampshire Community Veterans Engagement Board and sponsored by Service Credit Union. NHCares is an initiative of the NHCVEB.

The Veterans Administration, under the my VA program, has established Community Veterans Engagement Boards (CVEBs) in all fifty states. The mission of the New Hampshire Community Veterans Engagement Board (NHCVEB) is to raise awareness, increase collaboration, and increase education throughout New Hampshire as to what it means to be a veteran, and how we can better serve our veterans, service members, and their families to improve outcomes. We define Veteran as any person who has served or is currently serving in any branch of the Armed Services.
We strive to help veteran advocates, service providers, veterans and all stakeholders to have a voice in identifying community goals and work to resolve issues at the local level to improve service delivery to veterans, service members and their families.
The NHCVEB is spearheading initiatives aimed at supporting veterans, connecting communities and celebrating the successes we find in the New Hampshire Community.
