IAVA has been very effective in a number of areas, like getting better Federal legislation for vets, improving awareness and support for vets problems, and mutual support systems for vets.

This also includes real big areas like jobs for vets, which is perhaps the highest priority matter for veterans, and their spouses. They're arguably the most important support groups for recent vets.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I hear great stories about IAVA directly from the vets themselves.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help them work with others to build a centralized website to serve all basic veterans needs.
