a vision of diversity and hope, painted by children suffering from Agent Orange congenital defects; Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

There are forty IVW members so far. We are men and women, Christian, Jewish, and Muslim. Just short of half of us are veterans who served in the U.S. Army, Navy, Marines, or Air Force. The other half are family members and friends of veterans. We all share a deep concern for the high rates of suicide, homelessness, addiction, and domestic violence among combat veterans, and this motivated us to join together in the autumn of 2015 to see what we could do about such suffering. Currently we are researching the issues that we can take on, and what resources are available to do so. If you know of veterans who need help or want to pitch in and help others, please contact us by the Contact page. Thanks!
