PROMINENT VETERAN BUSINESS GROUP LAUNCHES “VEDI 25” TO SALUTE THE UNSUNG HEROES THAT WORK TOWARDS BETTERING THE LIVES OF VETERANS HERE ON THE HOMEFRONT

NEW YORK, NY (February 10, 2017) – Veterans Entrepreneurial Development Initiatives, (VEDI), Incorporated is set to recognize the “unsung” heroes and sheroes on the home front who make a difference for long term sustainability for returning veterans and their families. With the launch of “VEDI 25”, the community based, veteran-focused organization will pay tribute to individuals and organizations that operate in the “domestic trenches” to build up positive and productive infrastructures for veterans to effectively return to civilian life.

“We will not only recognize those who put the needs of veterans first, but actually step up to do something,” stated Meta J. Mereday, VEDI, Inc. Founder and Domestic Warrior for Veterans.  “I am so passionate about helping our veterans and re-igniting the veteran community and I know that there are others out there who did not serve, but are battling everyday here at home to help those who protected us.  I come from a military family and a family of advocates, so my service has been on the home front because I stand on the shoulders of those who served on many fronts.”

The “VEDI 25” will be comprised of a select group that will be the launch of the VEDI “Circle of Champions for Vets” which will include an annual class of 25 who will be selected by VEDI Team members and advisory board members based on proven results and recommendations. “This selection will not be determined by ‘likes” but by actions that have elevated the condition of veterans and improved their long term sustainability,” added Mereday. “Grass roots efforts, while underfunded, are the true fabric that supports veteran empowerment. We do not have the luxury or cushion to waste time or money.  Veteran Lives are in jeopardy daily and the ‘VEDI 25’ will represent those who are in the domestic trenches with us lifting up our veterans.”

Meta, the VEDI team and their community partners have been in the forefront of addressing the needs of veterans and their families who too often fall through the cracks of the broken system and bridge gaps – even with limited resources – to make a difference that generates a ripple effect of results.  Whether it is advocating for legislation to improve access for veteran businesses to procurement opportunities and advocating for waivers for student veterans to register for classes without delays, to moving a veteran family during a tropical storm and helping to keep veterans in their homes; VEDI has made its mark as a true advocacy organization for veterans.  During this process, the team has developed relationships with individuals and organizations that have gone “above and beyond” in providing assistance to the VEDI model of empowering the veteran community.

Veterans Entrepreneurial Development Initiatives (VEDI) Inc. is a 501(c)(3) New York State not for profit organization that was established to collaborate with various organizations to create an effective national model to grow veteran businesses, increase veteran employment and ignite veteran community empowerment.

April is National Minority Health Month

Making your health a top priority is of utmost importance. Be empowered and make sure you know what is going on with your body. Is your cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar levels normal? Have you had a physical within the last year? Are you informed of your family’s history with regards to hereditary diseases and the like? We want you to be proactive when it comes to your health.

Know that most of the times African-Americans are more likely to lose their lives to certain diseases at disproportionate rates compared to other races. This week is also Minority Cancer Awareness Week, seek out information, learn the signs and remember that early detection is the key to survival for most cancers.

Check out Midnight Management’s Founder & CEO, Tiffany Braxton’s blog, BlackWomenStandUp.com where she is the Co-Founder and learn all about their Gynecological and Breast Cancer Awareness Initiative “Love Your Va-Jay-Jay Day” fueled by the hashtag #CheckUpOnIt. Lots of information has been shared this week with regards to gynecological cancers on the site and via their Twitter page @BlkWomenStandUp.

Let’s keep the conversation surrounding health ongoing beyond National Minority Health Month. We recently lost a Hip-Hop Legend to complications with Diabetes, Phife Dawg from Tribe Called Quest, and Doug Banks a long-time radio personality. R.I.P. to these Kings. Both diabetes and cancer are two diseases that plague African-American families and communities, so it is in our best interest to empower ourselves with information for awareness and prevention.
