IAVA Founder on Ning and his Veterans Support Campaign


Paul Rieckhoff is the Founder and Executive Director of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), the nation's first and largest non-partisan, nonprofit organization representing veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. I spoke with Rieckhoff yesterday at the Personal Democracy Forum in New York where he just concluded a press conference announcing the 2009 first quarter results from the Veterans Support Campaign, which launched in November. The on-line and on-air campaign, anchored by Ning-based CommunityofVeterans.org, was established to support veterans coming home. The first quarter brought in $26 million in donated media. In the below video, Rieckhoff talks about Ning, the campaign and IAVA.
