About

The York County Veterans Outreach was established in the fall of 2013 by Susan Byrnes, R.N., Veteran Craig Trebilcock, and a group of committed individuals. Recognizing a need to assist local veterans and their families, we have enlisted the help of a wide range of individuals and veteran-affiliated organizations.

True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.
Arthur Ashe
