Reviews for Iraq And Afghanistan Veterans Of America Inc
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.
