Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 11, 2014
The Disabled Veterans National Foundation, a nonprofit veterans service organization that provides critically needed support to disabled and at-risk veterans who leave the military wounded—physically or psychologically—after defending our safety and our freedom, issued a statement on the commemoration of September 11th.
From DVNF CEO, Joseph VanFonda (USMC SgtMaj Ret.):
“What began as a beautiful, sunny September morning turned dark and tragic in an instant. I doubt our nation will ever be the same again. The gravity of such an event is truly life altering—not only for those who lost a loved one that day, but also for those who stepped in to defend us without a moment’s hesitation.
“Partisan bickering, politics, and other domestic issues seem to dominate the headlines all the time, but not today. Today, we all stop and remember that fateful Tuesday morning in which lives were lost, fears were recognized, and every person collectively remembered what it means to be an American.
“I challenge every citizen of our great nation to thank a service member or veteran, not only for their service, but also for their willingness to defend us, and for the sacrifices they have made as a result. On this day, we hope every American reflects on just how fragile life is and the important roles our military and veterans have played in our safety.”
The Disabled Veterans National Foundation exists to provide critically needed support to disabled and at-risk veterans who leave the military wounded—physically or psychologically—after defending our safety and our freedom.
We achieve this mission by:
- Providing personalized counseling to assist veterans in navigating the complex process of seeking benefits that they are entitled to as a result of their military service.
- Offering direct financial support to veterans and other veteran organizations to address the issues that align with the DVNF mission.
- Providing supplemental assistance through the Health & Comfort program and Empowerment Webinars.
- Serving as a thought leader on critical policy issues within the veteran community.
