IAVA in Washington
Led by veterans, our non-profit, non-partisan work ensures that Iraq and Afghanistan vets and their families are supported, protected and never forgotten. Since 2004, IAVA has been a juggernaut in Washington. We've created and driven the national conversation on issues like Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), the New GI Bill, unemployment, and women's issues.

IAVA Issue Reports
Last summer, Congress passed legislation to compensate servicemembers who were stop-lossed after September 11, 2001. IAVA had been fighting for this provision for over a year, and now those payments have finally become available.
