~ About Dan Lombardo: Dan Lombardo joined the United States Air Force in 1990 to finish his last two years in the USAF Electrical Engineering program. Dan served during Desert Storm, and while serving, he had a traumatic experience when he lost one of his fellow Airmen in a training accident. After returning home, Dan worked in the electrical industry, helping to design large electrical projects. Dan started helping veterans with joining the electrical / construction industry to find a new career and purpose. In 2013 Dan met a group of Marines who just had started 22kill (One Tribe Foundation) as just an awareness program to let the world know we are losing 22 veterans a day by suicide. Dan decided to jump in 100% with joining the board and help grow the charity into what it is today. Now, One Tribe Foundation’s main focus and mission are to create a community that raises awareness and combats suicide by empowering veterans, first responders, and their families through traditional and non-traditional therapies. Dan is the Chairman of the Board of Directors for a 22kill and has committed his seven years to make sure we Restore the Value of Life to our warrior community. Dan also is the Advisory Chairman for the Brotherhood for the Fallen police organization in Fort Worth, Texas, whose main focus is to honor the families of lost police officers. ~ You can find Dan Lombardo on . . .
