A Message from IAVA -- Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans of America

Turn on the news any day this week, and you'll see the usual array of politicians and pundits talking about partisan polls, negative ads, and margins of error.

With Veterans Day just around the corner, please remember: Washington may look different next week. But Baghdad won't. Come November 7th, no matter who gets elected, the war in Iraq will still be raging. In the month of October, more than 100 US troops died in Iraq, the most deadly month in a year.

 Now more than ever, your support of IAVA is crucial. In the week leading up to Veterans Day, please tell your friends about IAVA, and help us build our support nationwide.

Because we're nonpartisan, we are uniquely placed to work with all members of Congress, on both sides of the aisle, to continue the real progress we've made on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury, equipment shortages, and funding for veterans hospitals.

Help us continue our mission. Please take a moment to spread the word about IAVA to five of your friends. We're hoping to grow our base by 5,000 new supporters. Elections come and go, but we've proven we'll still be here, fighting for what really matters: real support for Troops and Veterans.

Paul Rieckhoff
Executive Director
Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America
