Operation Warrior Shield is led by CMSgt(ret) Edward Schloeman, John Walsh, Maria Karamalis, and LtCo. (ret) Patrick Kernan. Board Members consist of Dennis Herrera, Abe Shainberg, Brett Hochman, Francesca DeVito, and Christina Tadross.
Over the last 8 years, Ed Schloeman and the late Jerry Yellin traveled the country speaking on behalf of the non-religious modality of Transcendental Meditation –TM. In turn, they became partners with many veteran service organizations –Wounded Warrior Project, USO, US Army, USMC, NYC Department of Veterans Services and others.
Today, we have partnered with the David Lynch Foundation and Tournesol Wellness of NYC to bring proven treatments to help “heal the hidden wounds” and to build resilience to the stresses of life.
