Blind Veterans UK is delighted to be working in partnership with Revision Military. Over the next two years Revision will be the primary sponsor of Project Gemini, our veterans annual global exchange programme.

How we will work together


Revision Military will be sponsoring Project Gemini, an important annual exchange programme with the Blinded Veterans Association (BVA) USA held in the UK. Hosting a visiting group of blind veterans from the US offers opportunities for our ex-Service men and women to take responsibility, to learn and share experiences as well as to make new friends.


The visiting group includes military eye health specialists who provide invaluable contacts for the charity, sharing developments and research in this area with our own specialists. Veterans in the Blind Veterans UK younger veterans group reciprocate their visit, by attending BVA's annual conference in the USA.


This is an important personal journey for the young veterans who may be undertaking their first significant trip since losing their sight. In 2015 Project Gemini will expand to welcome new blind veterans from both Canada and South Africa and will be sponsored by Revision Military.


About Revision Military

Revision Military specializes in producing protective solutions for soldiers.  They have recently signed a contract to provide ballistic protective eyewear as well as head and face protection for the British Army.  In their own words:

 

"Revision, a company that designs, develops and delivers protective solutions for soldiers around the world, was built upon its foundation as a key provider of ballistic eye protection whether in spectacle or goggle format.  Just as we strive to provide the very best protection for our troops, we also feel obligated to support those who have been injured in the line of duty" said Alex Hooper, Vice President of Global Sales and Business Development.  He continued "In our view, with all of the good work that Blind Veterans UK does to help with lifelong practical and emotional support for veterans who have lost their sight, this is the right organization for Revision to endorse, especially in their centenary year."
