Kyle Aines

Associate Director of Veterans and Military Services
Phone: 802-786-5185 Text: 802-332-3731

Serving all CCV centers

Kyle’s responsibilities as a Veteran & Military Resource Advisor include supporting veteran and military students throughout their time at CCV, connecting with the greater community, developing resources, and training staff. He has been with CCV since 2014 and his office is located in Rutland, although he travels throughout the state in this role.Kyle grew up in the small mountain town of Tinmouth, Vermont. He joined the Army less than a year after graduating high school and completed Basic Training at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. After graduating from Advanced Individual Training as a combat medic (Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio Texas), he was then assigned to 515th Forward Support Battalion, 1st Cavalry Division in Fort Hood, Texas. One year and three days after leaving his home in Vermont, he was on a plane to Baghdad, Iraq. As an active duty soldier, Kyle completed a second tour (16 months) to Muqdadiyah, Iraq with 6/9 Cavalry Scout Squadron.

Between tours Kyle began dating his wife, whom he married in 2011. He graduated from Castleton University in 2012 with a bachelor of arts in criminal justice. Kyle is the proud father of two sons, a role he had previously practiced with his fur-baby, Remy, a dog adopted from a shelter in Tennessee.

Kyle’s experiences as a non-traditional student who integrated back into the civilian world means he understands what it is to be a military-connected student. Almost a year after graduating from college, Kyle applied for and received a service-connected disability for PTSD. He can attest to the effects PTSD had on his personal life, as well as his education. He can also attest to the empowerment gained by seeking the help he needed. His love for fellow veterans and military members, coupled with his deep passion to serve others, has led him dutifully from the Army, through college, and to the Veteran & Military Services Team here at CCV.

Patrick arrived at CCV as an Administrative Assistant at the Rutland center in early 2016.

In his free time, Patrick enjoys playing and writing music, spending time with his fiancée and their pup, Zola, and delving into the occasional binge of a video game.
