On Memorial Day 2012, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), the nation's largest organization dedicated to improving the lives of new vets and their families, will be marching in the National Memorial Day Parade in Washington, D.C. With the war recently over in Iraq, and the Afghanistan war in its 11th year, the National Memorial Day Parade will be paying special tribute to the service and sacrifice of this newest generation of veterans.
We hope you will join us in honoring and remembering those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. All veterans of Iraq are invited to participate in the first major public event in their honor, and in honor of those who made the ultimate sacrifice, in our nation's capital since the end of the war last December.
Sign up below to join hundreds of other veterans as IAVA marches in this year's National Memorial Day Parade.
