BENEFITING: Iraq And Afghanistan Veterans Of America Inc

EVENT DATE: Oct 15, 2011

Daniel Duckwitz

THE STORY:

My name is Sergeant Daniel Duckwitz and I am a US Army Reservist and veteran of both OIF and OEF. I am running my first Marathon this October in Baltimore. I am running to support Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA). IAVA is a tireless advocate for recent veterans on Capitol Hill and in corporate America. Please join me in making a donation so that they can continue to do great things for America's veterans.

About IAVA - www.iava.org :

 

Who We Are:

IAVA is 21st Century veterans’ organization dedicated to standing with the veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan from their first day home through the rest of their lives.

Our Mission & Vision:

To improve the lives of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and their families. We strive to build an empowered generation of veterans who provide sustainable leadership for our country and their communities.

Our Impact:

The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are entering their ninth and tenth years respectively. Over 2.2 million Americans have served in Iraq or Afghanistan, and thousands have been deployed multiple times. IAVA is focused on addressing mental health injuries, a stretched VA system, inadequate health care for female veterans, and GI Bill educational benefits.

We focus our impact in four critical areas for new veterans and their families -Health, Education, Employment and Community – with a three-pronged strategy:

Assistance: We create, optimize and expand assistance to veterans in the areas of Health, Education, Employment and Community. Awareness: We create awareness around the challenges and opportunities facing veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan. Advocacy: We create and influence public policy so veterans and their families have increased access to Health, Education, Employment and Community.

In these areas, IAVA provides valuable resources and empowers veterans to connect with one another, fostering a strong and lasting community from their first day home through the rest of their lives.

Our History:

IAVA was founded in 2004 by current Executive Director Paul Rieckhoff and his fellow Iraq and Afghanistan veterans. After returning home from their tours, these veterans came together after quickly becoming concerned with the way the war in Iraq was being portrayed in the media and the overall plight of newly returned veterans.

There were many policy experts and talking heads on TV, but very few people who had actually served on the ground in Iraq or Afghanistan. There was no one talking about what veterans needed and the issues they faced. The creation of IAVA has allowed thousands of veterans to join the national dialogue, and to explain what was really happening on the ground overseas and back home. Meet IAVA's Staff and Board of Directors.
