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

Rating: 4 stars  

My heart broke when our troops went into Iraq and Afghanistan. I experience great sadness when a life is lost or forever damaged. This is why I have supported IAVA since its beginnings. Our troops deserve an organization that fights for them on every front and IAVA is there. Not everyone concerns themselves over these wars. Only those directly affected or strongly attentive seem to care . I feel proud to be able to be there for our troops, in what little way I can, to help IAVA continue to champion for our veterans of these unfortunate wars.

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

My sons have benefited from the enhancements to the GI bill.

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

Encourage it to be louder and more visible to the general public. Make sure the faces of those who died and those injured in the Afghanistan war are acknowledged by TV and newspapers, as the Iraq war troops were.
