With an ode to duty, the event will feature Honorable Veterans: Ted Blickwedel – Veteran Administration Whistleblower, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and a retired Lieutenant Colonel in the Marine Corps who is a combat and disabled veteran. He will share his crusade to restore the Veterans Administration Vet Center’s broken promise to provide quality care for veterans. The VA’s mandate focused on quantity versus the quality of care for vets dramatically increased counselor workloads at the expense of veterans’ mental health care, including those with PTSD.

Ret. Lt. Col. Ted Blickwedel

Becoming a whistleblower, Blickwedel experienced retaliation, including gaslighting, isolation, mobbing, and false accusations. His underlying dedication to protecting quality care for veterans has led to Congressional legislation holding the VA leadership accountable to ensure this injustice does not continue.

He is working closely with Senator Reed and Congressman Cicilline’s staff in RI and Washington, DC, to pass legislation protecting Veteran mental health.

He has invested in this cause out of his account. Therefore, there will be assistance given to him in recouping funds to put this change into legislation.
