Join IAVA in celebrating the release of TIME's The New Greatest Generation, profiling IAVA Member Veterans as the new face of American leadership.
“This is a historic moment for IAVA and for all Iraq and Afghanistan veterans. The TIME cover story proves the potential of a powerful new generation of American leaders. The five of us are humbled to have been chosen to represent our brother and sisters in the veterans community. But we are just the tip of the spear. The “Innovation Generation” embodies the diversity, skill and energy of all 2.3 million Iraq and Afghanistan veterans. It shows the entire world that veterans are not a charity, we’re an investment. We’ve led America in combat overseas, and we’re ready to lead at home,” said IAVA Founder and Executive Director Paul Rieckhoff.
After almost 10 years of war, this extraordinary TIME cover story profiles Iraq and Afghanistan veterans who are defining the next generation of leadership in politics, business and social entrepreneurship.
Five IAVA Member Veterans, including Founder and Executive Director Paul Rieckhoff and Board Member Wes Moore, are featured in The New Greatest Generation by columnist Joe Klein about how young war veterans are redefining leadership at home.
Watch the making of the TIME cover story!
Show our nation’s heroes that you have their backs everyday by making an investment in IAVA. We focus our impact in four critical areas for new veterans and their families - Health, Education, Employment and Community.
IAVA’s three-pronged approach to generating change consists of: raising general awareness so our veterans return to a country and community that understand their unique experience; advocating for policy change in Washington and around the country to create support at all levels, federal to local; and building alliances with partners who deliver best-in-class services to our veterans.
We are a 21st Century veterans’ organization dedicated to standing with the veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan from their first day home through the rest of their lives. Join the movement to help us build an empowered generation of veterans who provide sustainable leadership for our country and our communities.
