Veterans First Initiative
Are you a veteran who is needing dental care? As a part of the FLA-MOM event, the Veterans First Initiative is a special engagement where veterans will have Priority Access to receive dental care services on Thursday, March 21. To take advantage of this priority access, you must be there to check-in at 12:30PM on Thursday, March 21st for a dental exam and you will be given an appointment for priority seating to complete treatment the next morning. This unique opportunity is only available to 200 veterans. If interested, click here to register and reserve your spot.
FLA-MOM, the signature event of the FDA Foundation, is a two-day professional dental clinic that seeks to relieve patients of the pain and infection of untreated dental disease. The event is made possible by the generosity of FDA member dentists who volunteer along with over 1,000 additional community volunteers.
The FLA-MOM event will help hundreds of Veterans receive compassionate and professional dental care that will relieve pain, restore dignity and create smiles – all at no cost to the patient!
The Veterans First Initiative is a part of a public event that doesn't officially start until Friday, March 22nd. However, those who register through the link above will receive a boarding pass. The boarding pass must be printed and brought on-site to receive this priority access before the general public. It's important that veterans arrive at the Edgewater High School in Orlando by 12:30PM on Thursday, March 21 and check in with the American Legion on site.
The main purpose of this blog is to bring awareness to America's missing from past wars and conflicts either as a Prisoner of War, or Missing in Action. We also include Contractors, Law Enforcement Officers and civilians being held in known terrorist countries.
Our fallen veteran's will also have a spot on here as well as appropriate news for and about veterans.
It is also a place to express views and opinions about current events affecting our veterans and/or senior population.
