IAVA Update On Super Storm Sandy Aftermath


The past two weeks have been amazing. See for yourself:

Coming off the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, our members overwhelmingly wanted to do one thing – serve our country. Just as we did overseas, we answered the call to support a new mission at home.

We stepped up at service projects around the country to revitalize local schools, libraries and parks. We marched down main streets where kids gave us cards and WWII vets waved flags.

I've been trying to find the right word for what I felt watching our members run the IAVA flag up the parade route. Pride is the right word. Last week, our community seized a critical moment to show the country who new vets are and what we're made of. And I was nothing but proud to be a part of it.

Let's keep building this community together. Share the video and tell a friend to sign up. As I've said before, we're stronger together.

Thanks for all your support.
