Florida Veterans Foundation Unveils Ambassador Wall in State Capitol

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.‎
