I couldn’t be more proud of Swfl alliance. They help so many veterans, have events to raise money for the veterans, and are a huge presence here in Naples. Lois Bolin And Wayne Smith give so much of themselves to see that the veterans have what they need.
SWFL Veterans Alliance provide
the highest quality support for all veterans. Using a multi layered approach they honor our veterans; mind, body, and soul. The value of what these patriots do is without measure.
I’ve attended several Spirit of 45 events in the past few years. These events are to Honor our WWII Veterans.
Since attending events I’ve been introduced to many groups that are aligned with and inspired by SWFL Veterans Alliance. These groups are all dedicated to serving those who are serving or who have served USA in the Armed Services and/or as First Responders.
To sum it up, the organization is onE that -
HONORS - EDUCATES - INSPIRES - SERVES
My husband is a retired US Navy JAG Captain. Since moving to Naples Florida six years ago, we feel so fortunate to have found this amazing group known as SW Florida Veterans Alliance. The yearly event “Spirit of 45” is a must for all veterans. Lois Bolin pours hear heart and soul into this event and she never disappoints. The gratitude and patriotism overflows to all veterans.
I first spoke at their event I’m 2012 and have watched it grow into a much admired organization. Their volunteers cross a broad spectrum and are dedicated community stewards.
After 10 years their mission to Keep the Spirit of 45 Alive is going strong. Connecting the latest generation to the greatest generation brings such joy & meaning to all involved. Operation Christmas Spirit keeps the spirit alive for our local combat veterans. This all volunteer group is TMF.... too much fun!
SWFL Vetetans Alliance provides a unique collaborative model which supports and promotes vetetan organizations. Recently 80 JROTC cadets were fitted with new Italian suits, 13 vet supporting groups were provided free booth space at the 9th Annual Stone Crab Festival. Operation Christmas Spirit provided trees, wreaths and gift cards for local veterans.
Dr. Lois Bolin epitomizes the true meaning of a heart ❤️ for Veterans! Without her amazing leadership, our Vets wouldn’t have the memories she created for each of them!
She is the real deal, so blessed to be her friend!
Excellence in every way. Making a strong, positive difference in our community.
