Today is the last big push. Have you chipped in yet?
Every hour the Storm gets stronger. Our teams are making critical progress in DC this week. We've met with over 100 congressional offices and lawmakers from both sides of the aisle. And in record-time we've spearheaded the introduction of two important bills to combat vet unemployment. One will protect the New GI Bill for hundreds of thousands of vets. The other will expand the military's Transition Assistance Program so vets can get career support long after they separate from the service.
Can you pitch in to help us push Congress to support these crucial bills? We've got 26 vets in this fight against 12,000 lobbyists. But every dollar you donate to support our teams will be matched by a generous IAVA donor--and push us closer to our goal by midnight Friday.
Storm the Hill 2012 has been a huge success and we're not letting up on Capitol Hill. Today, we're taking our message straight to the White House to meet with the President's team and get buy-in from the Commander-in-Chief.
For the rest of the week and the rest of the year, we will continue to drive up support for our fight against vet unemployment. But we can't keep up the momentum without you.
Thank you for having our back.
