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.

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.

Austin Haines, Flashpoint documentarian and Power of Pure Presence TV host, will enlighten the audience on achieving a flashpoint moment.

Austin is the author of the Amazon Best-selling book Flashpoint a Turnaround Story Starts Here. As a Flashpoint Master Facilitator, Austin guides experiences with Flashpoint. Austin became an Award-Winning Speaker, Trainer, Podcast Host, and Coach. He reaches his audiences wherever they are on their growth path and engages them on a life journey to propel them towards their Flashpoint.

Austin's Flashpoint occurred after he struggled for many years living an unfulfilled life—a seemingly endless climb to reach nothing but dead ends and defeat. He carried the burdens of low self-esteem, feeling branded by the scars from his broken childhood. Later in life, a significant tragedy, tumultuous relationships, financial ruin, and the threat of addiction created a hurricane of hopelessness, dragging him into a dark space and time where he felt his life was over.

Things started to change through the support of his family, mentors, self-education, and spiritual beliefs. Austin landed a promising new job, but within a year, he was told he would be fired if he did not turn things around, the genesis of Flashpoint. During this time, Austin created a significant breakthrough that propelled him to become a top producer during a 19-year career with the same company.

Most recently, Austin resigned from his career and reinvented his life to become a full-time Life & Business Coach, Author, and Speaker. His Flashpoint set him on a mission to reach out and pave a path to reinvent life and journey, allowing emergence into a purpose-filled future a little easier and faster. He just started a new television show called the Power of Pure Presence.
