Disabled Veterans National Foundation Supports ‘Our Forgotten Warriors' - Awards OFW A $23,000 Grant
Disabled Veterans National Foundation is pleased to announce $23,000 in support given to Our Forgotten Warriors. Our Forgotten Warriors is a 100% volunteer organization and has grown nationally since a brave 19-year-old member of the U.S. Air Force was seriously injured in 2007. The DVNF contribution will be used for purchasing special medical equipment and groceries for Our Forgotten Warriors to distribute to Veterans in need.
“OFW is very appreciative to DVNF for the grant awarded,” said Carol Blake, CEO of Our Forgotten Warriors. “With the grant received we will be able to put food on the table for our veterans and their dependents and help purchase medical devices otherwise not covered by insurance. This grant will allow OFW to help alleviate some of the stress our veterans face on a daily basis. Collaboration between organizations is what is needed to help resolve the ongoing issues our heroes face. Together we can make a difference.”
Our Forgotten Warriors was founded in 2008, a year after 19-year-old Brandon Gauvreau of the U.S. Air Force suffered a hemorrhagic stroke at McChord Air Force Base in Lakewood, WA. After visiting three rehabilitation facilities in the first year of recovery - only to be discharged without getting the help he needed - A1C Brandon Gauvreau founded OFW with the support of his mother. His goal was to help other veterans by sharing what he had learned on his road to recovery.
“We at DVNF are honored to be able to support Our Forgotten Warriors,” said Precilla Wilkewtiz, President of DVNF. “There are so many of our heroes that are too quickly forgotten or do not get the assistance they need and we are working to reverse this reality.”
