Read: Daily Defend the GI Bill Update for May 26

The week is starting to come to a close, but you’d never know it seeing IAVA’s advocacy on Capitol Hill and around the country. We only have a few hours left before we start preparing for Memorial Day weekend, and we’re going to spend every second of it defending the GI Bill! A few highlights from yesterday:

Advocacy Team: 

  • Coordinated Texas IAVA member meeting in Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson’s (D-TX-30) Dallas office
  • Set-up meeting with the office of a prominent Republican Senator

Member Advocacy:

  • 16 Voter Voice messages sent out by our members yesterday
  • Defend the GI Bill campaign grassroots IAVA member message total stands at 30,439.

We at IAVA wish all of you a safe and meaningful Memorial Day weekend. On Memorial Day 12:01pm EDT please remember to pause for a moment of silence to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Take the pledge to #GoSilent here.
