Leaving San Diego a few years later, he moved his newly formed AWVA to Las Vegas, where he began the long process again, making the community's outpatient clinic aware of the needs of paralyzed veterans.
Another of his innovative projects in Nevada is the AWVA complex, which offers free "cottages" for veterans who use wheelchairs.
We cannot thank AWVA
enough for all their effort and commitment to helping wheelchair veterans by making this "motel" available.
Located in northwest Las Vegas and removed from the mainstream, the AWVA "motel" is just what the doctor ordered for relaxing in a quiet, completely wheelchair-accessible environment.
Next door to the Fiesta is the western-themed Texas, which has a large variety of slot machines, fabulous food, and is easy for wheelchairs to get around in, Shoppers will find Meadows Mall only about two miles south of the AWVA complex.
The American Wheelchair Veterans Association (AWVA
), Burger King, Hoechst Marion Roussel, NationsBank, Coors Brewing Company, Hill-Rom, and Teva Marion have made bronze-medal commitments.
