The Network in Action: Saving Gulf War Veterans from the Floridian Heat
Lieutenant Commander (LCDR) Richard Weltz of the U.S. Navy (ret.) and his wife, both Gulf War veterans, were devastated when their air conditioning unit failed during the hottest days of summer in Florida. They acted quickly to fix this issue through local resources, but due to unfortunate circumstances at no fault of their own, they could not receive local assistance. Under the recommendation of the U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) and the local veteran-serving organization, The Network was contacted by Richard and his family in hopes that America's Warrior Partnership (AWP) would be able to connect them with more resources.

With support from caring and passionate donors, The Network continues to advocate on behalf of veterans throughout the country. Please consider donating today to America's Warrior Partnership. Your generous, tax-deductible contribution will empower veterans, their families, and caregivers with holistic community care.
