The Celebration of Life service for Navy veteran Lauren Price will be held today (Sunday, April 11) at 2 p.m. ET. and is being streamed live on social media.
Price, 56, was the founder of Veteran Warriors and a fierce advocate for veterans’ rights and healthcare. She passed away on Tuesday, March 30, after a courageous battle with lung disease due to chemicals she was exposed to while serving in Iraq.
Lauren was a friend to DMLNewsApp founder Dennis Michael Lynch and deeply respected by our TeamDML family.
Dennis will be giving the eulogy for Price at her service, and is expected to begin speaking around 2:30 p.m. ET.
“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,” Lynch said in a statement upon learning of Price’s passing.
WATCH the live-streaming service for Price below. Streaming is scheduled to begin at 1:45 p.m. ET.
