GAC renews help for injured veterans

The GAC Group is once again supporting the Wooden Boats For Veterans foundation (WBFV), a California-based organization that helps veterans get back into life’s fight. To date, WBFV has set sail with more than 50 veterans who served and sustained injuries in the Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts.

GAC started supporting the charity in December last year and is renewing its commitment with a contribution to help restore a 1938 wooden yacht, ‘Clover’, itself a veteran having seen service in the English Channel during World War II.

Once fully restored, the ‘Clover’ will be able to host up to 24 disabled veterans on trips around the San Francisco Bay and along the coast of California.

“GAC’s commitment is instrumental to WBFV’s mission to build a veteran community around the restoration of ‘Clover’. We are deeply grateful for their ongoing support,” says WBFV President Terry Moran.
