Paralyzed Veterans of America Awareness Month

Posted by PVA Staff on Feb 25, 2017 1:59:22 PM

In April, Paralyzed Veterans of America is marking the anniversary of its founding by urging all Americans to take a stand for veterans.

Paralyzed Veterans Awareness Month highlights the unique challenges facing veterans with spinal cord injury/disease. It spotlights the work of Paralyzed Veterans to empower seriously wounded heroes and their families with everything they need to thrive.

“Paralyzed Veterans of America has pushed hard for progress over our 67 years and we’ve delivered results. But we have much more progress to make in the cause of veterans and their families. Look at the challenges we face today: government funding cuts that could impact veterans and a disabled veterans unemployment rate three to eight times higher than average, to name just two issues,” said Al Kovach, national president of Paralyzed Veterans. “That’s why I’m asking my fellow Americans to help me this April, Paralyzed Veterans Awareness Month, in redoubling our efforts for positive change. We need you to be part of our big push for progress.”
