The New England Center and Home for Veterans (NECHV) is a not-for-profit, community-based support organization dedicated to serving challenged Veterans of all eras. Now in its third decade, the NECHV is a private institution with a very public mission of offering a broad array of programs and services that enable success, reintegration, meaningful employment, and independent living. The NECHV offers effective and timely services for the most disaffected and vulnerable Veterans by providing more prevention and wellness focus programs. The NECHV serves Veterans in need from every era including those from the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, regardless of where they lived or may travel.

C. Andrew "Andy" McCawley joined the NECHV in June 2011 after a 30-year career in the U.S.Navy as a Naval Officer and Aviator.

McCawley commanded a Navy fighter squadron and two ships, including the aircraft carrier USS ABRAHAM LINCOLN, CVN72. McCawley earned his B.S. in Naval Architecture from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD, an M.S. in Aeronautical Engineering from the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterrey, CA, and graduated from the U.S. Naval Test Pilot School. In 2001, he completed the Advanced Management Program at the Harvard Business School. Following active duty, Andy worked in the aerospace and defense industry, most recently as Vice President, Afghanistan Program for Alenia North America.
