The San Diego District Attorney Investigators Association’s (SDDAIA) Fallen Officers Fund (FOF) was awarded the 2019 to 2020 “Pillars of Freedom” grant from the USS Midway Foundation. The USS Midway Foundation focuses on supporting military and law enforcement charitable organizations within our Community. FOF is fortunate to receive this grant for the second year in a row! FOF received a check for $20,000 which will help assist active-duty state, local and federal law enforcement officers and or their immediate family members in their time of need. All monies will be used throughout the San Diego and Imperial Counties. This could not be made possible without the generous donations from private organizations, individuals, fundraising events and the tireless efforts and dedication of the FOF Board members, volunteers and supporters.
On behalf of the entire FOF Team, SDDAIA members Rod Demetrio (FOF Chairman), Emalee Bowles (FOF Treasurer), Bryan Zmijewski (SDDAIA President), Erik Nava (SDDAIA Vice President) Stan Schwarz (FOF Board Member) and Jethro “JK” Hudgins (FOF Board Member) accepted this year’s USS Midway Foundation’s “Pillars of Freedom” grant on November 7, 2019, on deck of the USS Midway.
