Rick Kell, Co-founder and Executive Director of Feherty’s Troops First Foundation, is back to continue the conversation with Kevin Weaver and Dan Boever, this time diving deeper into the foundation’s approach to help warriors discover closure and healing from their experiences in battle.
Troops First Foundation was created to develop, operate and support wellness, quality of life and event-based initiatives for post-9/11 combat-injured Warriors. These initiatives facilitate a greater recognition and an enhanced understanding of the quality and character of the men and women who volunteer to serve, their families, their daily sacrifices and the constant need to evaluate and improve their quality of life.
Their initiatives provide housing to wounded veterans and their families, establish valuable connections among service members to give them a critical support network in an effort to combat the veteran suicide crisis, coordinate a unique opportunity for service members to leave the battlefield on their own terms, and provide service dogs to assist in everyday life.
