Review for Iraq And Afghanistan Veterans Of America Inc, New York, NY, USA
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.

We went into both wars not thinking about the consequences and how those consequences would be met.
