Game Changers 2011: IAVA's Paul Rieckhoff On Getting Veterans Back To Work

The Huffington Post honored our 2011 Game Changers at New York's Skylight Soho on Tuesday, celebrating forward-thinking individuals who have changed their respective fields this year.

Paul Rieckhoff, Impact Game Changer and Executive Director and Founder of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America spoke to us about the biggest issues confronting veterans today, including the 20% veteran unemployment rate facing returning veterans. While Rieckhoff is the force behind the largest nonprofit organization for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans, he was sure to keep the focus on IAVA's over 100,000 members.
