The Maui Warrior Appreciation Vacation was started by Farzad Azad working with local businesses around Lahaina, Maui. The mission of the Maui Warrior Appreciation Vacation is to thank veterans for their sacrifice and service to our nation by providing them a one week all expenses paid vacation. Farzad (pictured below) is arguably the most patriotic man on Maui and has made it his mission to give back to those who have given so much for our freedom. Farzad is also the owner of Java Jazz and provides all the food and dining for the vacations.
Forward March Inc. and Farzad have formed a partnership to grow the Maui Warrior Appreciation Vacation program and increase its outreach.
Earlier this summer the vacation was taken by none other than our own Paul C. Volpe II USA (R) – Founder and President of Forward March Inc. Paul was joined by his friend J.P. Lane who is a US Army wounded warrior from Green Bay, Wisconsin. J.P. is also an amazing and up and coming musician so be sure to keep your eye on him in the future. You can check him out on the web HERE.
For veterans such as J.P. this vacation gives a chance at rest and relaxation in an amazing location as only Maui can offer. J.P. took the opportunity to play his music while on the island in a variety of settings.
Paul and J.P. stayed at Napili Kai Beach Resort for the week enjoying the local sights and attractions.
J.P. rocked the house at Java Jazz
Who cannot resist live music?
Paul and J.P. ran into Grammy Award winner George Kahumoku on their vacation, a legend in the world of Slack Key guitar and all around amazing musician.
One thing that folks who know J.P. understand very quickly is that this young man is unstoppable. Being a double amputee does not stop him from hitting the waves for some quality surf action.
The vacation would not be complete without an amazing day of relaxation provided by Spa Lelle. This program is an amazing opportunity for veterans to be able to enjoy the sights and sounds of Maui and get some well deserved time away.
We hope you enjoyed this post of Paul and J.P.’s trip, check back often for more info on the Maui Warrior Appreciation Vacation.
Forward March Inc thanks Farzad Azad and all the local businesses for their outstanding support and for providing such a great opportunity for our veterans.
