Iraq And Afghanistan Veterans Of America Inc
July 31, 2011

As an advocate for veterans and all of the multiple problems they face when they return to civilian life, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America is one of the best. Their ability to lobby Congress is outstanding and tireless. Best of all, it is veterans working for veterans. The slogan 'We've Got Your Back' means just that.
Their daily blog keeps me aware of what is happening in Afghanistan, Iraq, the Military establishment, and Congress. That's more than I get from the media.
And any donation is followed by an acknowldegement. Your donation does not disappear into an organistional 'black hole'.
I would recommend this organization to any person who wishes to help those veterans who gave and sacrificed so much and have returned to both a painful and uncertain future.

The Great!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would do nothing. They know better than I do what are the needs of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans. Some entity has to respond to the multiple needs of these men and women. The military is not exactly doing a stellar job. We went into both wars not thinking about the consequences and how those consequences would be met.

Donor & I have supported this organization through donations.
