Dave Wickey, Founder/CEO

Born and raised in Northern Indiana where duty, honor, respect, and work ethic were instilled. Dave is married to the love of his life, Jeanette (a.k.a. “j” who is the Director of TWO4VETS) and is a father and grandfather.  Dave and j are living their love story in Arizona.

Dave is retired from the U.S. Air Force where he served as a Security Police Law Enforcement Specialist.  After serving his country for over 20 years, he began his second career as a Federal Police Officer with the Veterans Administration for three years.  He later moved to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) where he became a Diversion Investigator. For 17 years Dave carried out the DEA Mission in fighting the opioid crisis and controlled substance abuse until his retirement as a front-line supervisor.

He is a lifetime member of both The Veterans of Foreign Wars and The American Legion. Dave is also a member of the Tucson Rincon Lions Club, the Thunder Mountain Moose Lodge and the Catalina Council Boy Scouts of America.  Dave has made it his mission to help fellow veterans and service members.

TWO4VETS (The Wickey Organization 4 VETS) mission began with our commitment to helping a local family that was devastated by the sudden loss of their veteran. Dave and J stepped up with love and support to aid the young family as best they could and realized this was a situation that occurs far too often concerning our vets and their loved ones.

Having seen this tragedy firsthand, TWO4VETS was formed so that NO United States military veteran should ever have to be laid to rest as a “pauper” again.
