Statement from IAVA Founder Paul Rieckhoff on Inauguration
Today is an overwhelmingly emotional and historic day for our country. As the Inauguration of America's 45th President is underway in Washington, many across the nation are extremely optimistic. Many are deeply concerned. And in our lifetime, our nation has never been more divided.
Inauguration: Standing Ready to Work with the New Administration and Fight for Our Principles
It’s Inauguration Day and the IAVA DC office is busily gearing up for changes with VA and DoD leadership, as well as veteran policy initiatives that the Trump Administration will push forward. Following the swearing in of Donald Trump as the 45th President, we expect his administration to put a series of executive orders and we will be reviewing them to see how they affect IAVA members.
IAVA is excited to have a group of members from across the country joining tomorrow’s Salute to Armed Services Inauguration Ball at the National Building Museum. These members bring with them a diverse set of experiences and hail from as far away as California and as close as Maryland. Read more about them here!
