Harry Bridgwood served his country as a USMC Vietnam Era veteran, and afterwards served the people of New York City in law enforcement for 29 years with the NYPD, 24 years as a Detective, 17 years of which dedicated to investigating homicides.
His devotion to the 1,741 New York City residents who made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam was equaled only by his dedication to supporting our post-9/11 wounded veterans as a Board Member of Hope For The Warriors.
In early 2016, we paid tribute to Harry Bridgwood. Our beloved board member left a legacy of honor, courage and Hope to us all. His leadership will continue to set the bar for our level of excellence. Aside from honesty and fidelity, a sense of humor is the human quality many valued most in Harry. With a twinkle in his eye, Harry would invariably remind us of what is important.
Harry’s love of family and country drove his every day. He exemplified our 10 year campaign, Serve 2 Serve. We are forever grateful for the dedication of Harry and his amazing wife, Candy Bridgwood.” – Robin Kelleher, CEO Hope For the Warriors
