UWVC Health & Wellness Update – April 3, 2019

April 3, 2019

United War Veterans Council Health and Wellness Wednesday.

The majority of the 7 participating veterans from Samaritan Daytop Village were new to the program representing the Army, Navy, Marines and Coast Guard with experience spanning from the Cold War to Post 9/11 Service.

Big thanks to Umberto’s Pizzeria for cooking up a lunchtime feast!

It was nice to be outside at Serenity Stables From Combat To Calm where the vets engaged in grooming and leading horses.

We ended the day at Ani Art Academies America in Red Bank where Kevin Moore gave a class on drawing in charcoal pencil.

 The mission of the United War Veterans Council is to honor and serve America’s veterans.

We are dedicated to ensuring that the public always embraces its commitment to provide all veterans and their families with the care, recognition and opportunities they have rightfully earned.

We work to achieve this goal by:

  • Supporting and promoting a wide range of initiatives that provide vital services to our veterans community (including health & wellness and legacy & education programs).
  • Raising positive awareness and increase understanding of the needs of our veterans, military service members and their families through major public events and promotional activities, including the New York City Veterans Day Parade, the largest event of its kind in the nation.
  • Uniting veterans groups, community organizations, city, state and federal agencies, local businesses, major corporations and the general public behind efforts to serve veterans of all eras.

We invite you to learn more about how we help veterans and to get involved in supporting our work!
