USN Veteran LT Wayne Telford brings the Veterans presence to the BC40 Board, a presence that is widely respected among all in the organization. Wayne not only served proudly during the Vietnam War, but also is a Gold Star father. A staunch advocate for Veterans in his work with the VA, Wayne carries with him the mission of bringing awareness to Veteran suicide. Losing his daughter Brooke to suicide after 17 years in the Air Force, Wayne has walked the path that so many cannot fathom, and has turned his tragedy into spiritually based message that resonates with all who have received the blessing to have met with him. BC40 is blessed to have him and his wife Lana in our circle.
