Veterans Environmental Technology Foundation
Organized by: Richard Warrington
I am a Veteran, my girlfriend is the Widow of a Veteran. All Veterans know what little help the VA is. The VA is absolutely no help to Widows of Veterans if the veteran refused help from the VA Medical System. There was no help for my girlfriend after her Veteran husband died. He did not respect the VA Medical System. He did not have Boots on Soil in Vietnam, but was exposed to Agent Orange in logistics, shipping and handling. They did not acknowledge it.
We are starting a nonprofit Foundation to the run by Veterans, their family members, employing Veterans and their family members and making the best use of old technology and develop new technology so Veterans, their families and eventually other target groups have low or no utility bills and the environment is cleaned up in the process. I would like to see Veterans and eventually other target groups spend no more than one-third of their household income on housing and utilities. I need money to register the corporation at state and federal levels as a non profit, to set it up and get it functional. All my life I've been a poor philanthropist using my last dime to help one person at a time. I borrowed money to help people. I have done a lot of volunteer work with Habitat for Humanity and Rebuilding Together in Augusta County Virginia in years past. I've donated over 13 gallons of blood. This Foundation will be ability to help people will only be limited by the imagination of Veterans and their family members. I know what my strong points are my weak point are and I am willing to delegate authority to others with better skills in certain areas than myself. The Foundation will make use of the skills Veterans and their family members have and eventually other target groups have. It will heir and promote Veterans and their family members. Once set up The Foundation will be able to take advantage of tax credits to help generous companies and individuals prosper in working with The Foundation. I have Air Force training in integrated avionics and troubleshooting. I have been a troubleshooter all my life. I see something not right and I want to fix it. I have a plan to help Veterans and other target groups and the environment all at once. By lowering the carbon footprint of groups and individuals I will help lower their utility costs and clean environment all at the same time. This benefits them directly and benefits future generations for all people. The name of the company says it all, I will use Veterans and their knowledge and skills to accomplish the goals of the foundation. The foundation will also be charitable and donate money to other honorable causes. Some of the things it will invest in is super efficient appliances, solar and wind generation as well as other means to produce and provide utilities for veterans and other target groups. Super efficient local and ling distance mass transit is also on my list of things to do and the profits from the mass transit will go back to the foundation to help the other causes. There will be a Board of Directors that think like my girlfriend snd I that the environment can be cleaned up and people can be helped at the same time. Every dollar raised will be used to get the most impact possible. The Foundation will have full time employees with good salaries and good benefit packages. We intend on hiring and keeping the best by treating them as fsmily. All Veterans, their families and descendants are family. My girlfriend and I are going to initially operate the company as a volunteers for the first year or longer afford to pay executive salaries. We will encourage other board members and executives to do the same until the company actually is doing what it intends to do and can prove it. We want no controversy about where the money is going. I do intend on running this company as long as it will allow me or until I die. It will be my only employment and my goal in life is to make it work well. I see myself more as a President, COO type person. I want to be in the field every day seeing that things are working well and to the best benefit of those we serve. The people we deal with will be our family and we will serve them well. Someone who enjoys the corporate world can be CEO. If I see something wrong, I want the authority to get it fixed and done right. Other than that the CEO can run the corporate end. My girlfriend is willing to work hard to see The Foundation get up and running, but she would like to rest a bit since her husband only died a few years ago and she lost a job he had for 30 years for having to take care of him. Her mother died two years later on the anniversary of her husband's death. Its been a long last few years for her. She really wants to see this up and going and helping Veterans and their widows and widowers and families.
