North Carolina Troopers Association Caisson Unit
The Caisson Unit is an “at-need” service provided by the NC Trooper’s Association (NCTA) and the NC State Highway Patrol (NCSHP). The NCTA maintains the horses and equipment. The NCSHP provides sworn and trained personnel to participate in carrying out the responsibilities of performing the funeral missions.
The Caisson is a horse-drawn military wagon that is used to transport a funeral casket. The Caisson wagon is well known for its use at Arlington National Cemetery where it has carried fallen soldiers and former United States Presidents to their final resting burial. The North Carolina State Highway Patrol Caisson members have been trained by the United States Army “Old Guard” at Arlington National Cemetery and perform funeral missions as requested through our organization.

Welcome to 1st Responders PTSD Connection PTSD.Help. Welcome to The Beginning; Your Beginning.
We are 501(c)3 non-profit organization as of March 2020. Our goal is to assist all 1st Responders who are struggling with PTSD. This includes ANY 1st Responder who wore, or is currently, wearing a badge or has sworn an oath to serve his or her community and is suffering a mental health emergency. Our hope is to give them the assistance and, find the backup needed for each first responder to not only survive but to get his or her identity back. It is a journey of one day at a time, that we hope to share, until they can “walk” again as they did the day they swore that Oath to Serve.
Protecting the Blue is a photography project that honors law enforcement officers and their good luck charms. Every officer also receives a custom Protecting the Blue challenge coin to carry with them. Protecting the Blue became a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in 2018 to further this project to show support for law enforcement across the United States and the world. We strive let officers know that there are people in this country that still respect their efforts and still “have their backs”.
