With an ode to duty, the event will feature honorable veterans: Ted Blickwedel – Veterans Administration whistleblower, licensed clinical social worker and a retired Marine Corps Lt. Col., veteran and disabled veteran. He will share his crusade to restore the broken promise of the Veterans Administration Veterinary Center to provide quality care to veterans. The VA’s mandate of focusing on quantity versus quality of care for vets has dramatically increased counselor workload to the detriment of mental health care for veterans, including those with PTSD.

Having become a whistleblower, Blickwedel suffered reprisals, including gaslighting, isolation, moral harassment and false accusations. His underlying dedication to protecting quality care for veterans led to congressional legislation holding VA leadership accountable to ensure this injustice does not continue.

He works closely with the staff of Senator Reed and Congressman Cicilline in RI and Washington, DC to pass legislation protecting the mental health of veterans.

He has invested in this cause on his account. Therefore, assistance will be granted to recover the funds necessary to incorporate this change into the legislation.
