The Florida Veterans Foundation (FVF) recently honored individuals committed to serving Florida’s veterans in need, at the Florida Capitol as part of its Forward March Ambassadors Wall Unveiling Ceremony. The event featured Florida Department of Veterans Affairs Executive Director Major General James Hartsell, FVF Chairman Bob Asztalos, FVF President & CEO Lew Wilson, Senator Danny Burgess, Senator Tom Wright and several other legislators who celebrated the recognition of these Ambassadors for their ongoing commitment to the FVF’s initiatives. The Florida Veterans Foundation (FVF) Ambassador Program grew out of the Forward March Campaign initiated by Governor Ron DeSantis. With fellow Veterans, Business and Community leaders across Florida, it identified ideas and recommendations for “Best Practices” to better serve Florida Veterans and their families through the FVF initiatives. This includes providing emergency support services to veterans in crisis due to the COVID-19 pandemic. FVF Ambassadors are recognized on the “Ambassadors Wall of Honor” in the Florida State Capitol, and are accepting applications at this time on https://helpflvets.org/vet-council/. The Florida Veterans Foundation (FVF) assists Florida veterans and their families by collaborating with organizations to improve veterans’ physical, mental, emotional and social well-being. Among the FVF’s programs are an Emergency Crisis hotline geared specifically for veterans, offering 24-hour assistance to prevent Veteran suicides and support Veterans suffering from opioid addiction and projects that support homeless Veterans and provide aging veterans and their survivors’ assistance with long-term care.
