I recently had the good fortune to swap emails with a leader in the IAVA: Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. They are holding a membership event this evening (Wednesday, 22 January 2014) aboard the USS Midway, the aircraft carrier museum that is on the San Diego waterfront.
It looks like a great opportunity to learn more about the organization. From their website:
Join us for a gathering with IAVA staff and IAVA Leadership Fellows, Veteran Transition Managers and local IAVA members. Learn more about what IAVA has accomplished over the last year, the benefits of membership (it’s free!), and the exciting programs and events we have coming up in 2014.
Member Veterans, supporters and anyone interested in learning more are welcomed!
If you are interested in attending, follow this link to register. It seems like a pretty interesting event and an even more interesting organization. I will certainly be engaging to learn more about what they do and how they help veterans. Check out the event if you are in the area!
