"This is a great opportunity to honor all women Veterans for their service to our entire country," said Precilla Wilkewitz, a Vietnam Veteran and President of the Disabled Veterans National Foundation.
“This contest is a way for young people to connect with Veterans and truly understand the sacrifices they have made and they challenges they face,†said Precilla Wilkewitz, Veteran and DVNF President. Wilkewitz said she hopes that Veterans and students will take this opportunity to connect and document the stories of service for posterity, in addition to furthering the DVNF mission of bringing awareness and support to those who have returned from service wounded or sick after defending our safety and freedom. “When you hear of such a decorated Veteran who is doing everything by the book, you can’t help but want to give,†said Precilla Wilkewitz, president of DVNF. “It is clear that Chad’s military training and exemplary service to the United States Marine Corps provided him with the discipline and strength to create a successful financial future.†“It’s always troubling to see a young Veteran struggling to make all their worlds come together while transitioning out of service and into college,†said Precilla Wilkewitz, president of DVNF. “The constant battle to pay for the daily expenses of life can take its toll, and so we were happy to step in and provide some assistance to Timothy to get him through to the next step.†Disabled Veterans National Foundation (DVNF) president Precilla Wilkewitz heard the call and provided an emergency grant of $15,000. newtornado After a devastating tornado struck the Fort Leonard Wood Army base on December 31, 2010, Operation Homefront of Missouri provided support to the many families left in tatters by the storm. The effort exhausted the organization’s cash reserve. Operation Homefront put out an appeal for help to other nonprofits dedicated to supporting veterans and military families. Disabled Veterans National Foundation (DVNF) president Precilla Wilkewitz heard the call and provided an emergency grant of $15,000. “It’s so great to see all the resources come together to get someone in a safe bed and with a roof over their heads,†said Precilla Wilkewitz, DVNF President. “We are just one part of the puzzle that is getting Kenneth back on his feet, and like all Veterans, he deserves the support he is getting.†“This family has managed to live within their means and raise their three children without assistance up until this medical tragedy struck the family,†said Precilla Wilkewitz, DVNF president and also a Veteran. “The costs to travel to and from doctor visits on a regular basis, let alone the loss of employment and income can really take its toll.†“There aren’t enough ways to say ‘thanks’ to the thousands of men and women who have served our country and returned home sick or wounded,†said Precilla Wilkewitz, Veteran and DVNF President. “But thanks to the gracious donors and supporters of DVNF, the amount that our organization can give continues to grow and we continue to be able to support more Veterans through groups like the U.S. Vets of Las Vegas.†“With any disability, there are challenges to overcome,†explained Precilla Wilkewitz, DVNF President. “However, in Josh’s case, he was focusing on taking care of his daughter in addition to dealing with his own disability. According to Precilla Wilkewitz, President of DVNF, the grant will fund a pilot program to provide therapeutic care for disabled veterans suffering from PTSD, physical disabilities, and learning disabilities through equine-facilitated activities. On June 29, 2010 Disabled Veterans National Foundation’s newly elected President , Precilla Wilkewitz, visited Capitol Hill to promote DVNF’s message, mission and vision for our women and disabled veterans. Ms. Wilkewitz presented the The Honorable Bob Filner, Chairman of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, with its Excellence in Leadership Award.
