The Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes (Coalition), a leading not-for-profit organization dedicated to rebuilding the lives of severely wounded veterans of the War on Terror, announced today that its Board of Directors has elected Lt. Col. Thomas J. Orlowski as its new chairman. The position was previously held by David Walker, who remains on the board as the Coalition’s president and chief executive officer.
The board also elevated Gail Laude to the position of vice-chairperson, and elected David Wetherell as its newest director. Bruce Kelly continues as secretary/treasurer. In addition, a new Audit Committee was formed, with Kelly and current director Tom Sircher serving in that capacity.
