Veterans Helping Veterans
On a consistent basis Navajo Nation has limited water supplies, electricity and wood for heat and cooking. The health care is minimal at best. Jobs are scarce and at times our veterans are forgotten…we are doing something about it.
Our mission is to assist and coordinate with Southwestern US Native American communities to develop sustainable living conditions focusing on water, power, and housing. We are continuing a COVID-19/health support program. Over 5000 Veterans, Elders and 1st responders are supported by our mission.
The program started earlier in 2020 with Task Force 48 but officially launched with the support of the Goldwater Foundation, and MD Helicopter in August.
As of December 31st, we have supported 20 flights with chain saws and PPE plus 9 tractor-trailer trips with 380 – 300 gallon water tanks and clothing and blankets for women veterans.
