      Wounded Veterans Relief Fund

      Fourth Annual Dive For Freedom Shark Dive

         Wounded  Veterans Relief Fund is a
       nonprofit organization which exists to
       provide emergency financial support to
       qualified disabled veterans living in Florida.
       Saving lives and keeping families together
       is  our  mission.  On  Independence  Day,
       Wounded Veterans Relief Fund took combat
       and purple heart veterans out for the fourth
       annual “Dive for Freedom” shark dive with
       the “shark addicts” located in Jupiter, Fla.
       The Palm Beach Sheriff’s Department did
       a fly by with their helicopter to kick off
       the dive prior to the veterans getting in
       the water. Below are photos from the dive,
       one  including Wounded Veterans  Relief
