New York, NY (February 24, 2015) — IAVA today released the following statement from CEO and Founder Paul Rieckhoff:

“While trying to connect with a homeless veteran, Secretary McDonald clearly made a mistake. He called me personally today to apologize for that mistake and we at IAVA accept his apology. We know Secretary McDonald is a man of exceptional commitment who served honorably and cares deeply about our veterans. All of America has witnessed his deep dedication to our community in his first few months on the job.
