With great sorrow, DMLNews has learned that retired Navy veteran Lauren Price, founder of Veteran Warriors and a fierce advocate for veterans’ rights and healthcare, has died. She was 56, and passed away on Tuesday, March 30, after a courageous battle with lung disease due to chemicals she was exposed to while serving in Iraq.
Instead of coming home from Iraq and spending her dying years with family and friends on a beach and checking off bucket list activities, she spent her days fighting for reform at the VA.
The DML Foundation will be donating $10,000 to the Lauren’s organization Veterans Warriors, a not-for-profit which provides experienced and proven advocacy for veterans who have lost their “voice”.
Lauren was a friend to DMLNewsApp founder Dennis Michael Lynch and deeply respected by our TeamDML family. She was featured in DML’s documentary, “They Come to America 3” to discuss her troubles trying to obtain treatment at the VA.
Dennis took to Facebook on Sunday morning to explain how he takes a portion from each sale on DML CBD and donates it to the DML Foundation, which ultimately funded the $10,000 donation to Veterans Warriors.

DML released the following statement Thursday night upon learning of Price’s death:
“Lauren Price was the epitome of what a true hero is. She served her country proudly, not just on the battle fields of Iraq but in the pits of a broken Washington DC. Instead of spending her final years resting on a sandy beach and checking off boxes on a bucket list, despite her terminal lung illness Lauren gave her energy and time to helping fellow veterans. Barely able to speak a paragraph without gasping for air, Lauren never quit lobbying for reforms that could fix the VA. Her efforts caught my attention and we became great friends. Her unbridled passion for helping others was something we rarely see in an era where selfie photos dominate social media. She inspired me to complain less over trivial nonsense and focus on fighting harder for the people and policies worth defending. I will miss my beloved friend, but I will always feel her presence.”
