About GIAVA

The Gulf Iraq Afghanistan Veterans Association Inc. is an organization made up of former defenders of freedom. We welcome all military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group.  Our common bonds are the battlefield, our love for our country, protecting our freedoms, and our commitment to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States.

Our core values are loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity, and personal courage. These values we hold true and are the basis of everything that we do making up the morale fabric of who we are.

Our primary mission is to organize former Middle Eastern Veterans giving them a place that promotes fellowship and comradery, and to further maintain the brotherhood that we all shared while in uniform. Additionally, we will provide a support system that promotes good mental health with our members.

The Sacrifices of War
Monument

The Gulf, Iraq, Afghanistan Veterans Association, Inc. is  soliciting financial support for The Sacrifices of War Monument proposed to be located in Port St. Lucie, Florida.  This monument will be to honor those who have served in combat and passed away after returning home and carrying the physical or mental wounds, directly or indirectly, sustained from service for our Country. Memorialization is important because it helps survivors come to terms with the reality of losing a loved one and beginning the grieving process. This monument will allow a place for family and friends to support each other during such a trying time.

The Sacrifices of War Monument will help fill the gap of those service men and women who would not otherwise be recognized for their ultimate sacrifice.  Thank you for your consideration.

 

Donations in any amount are appreciated and donors in the categories below will be acknowledged in publications and at the memorial unveiling:

 

Stars & Stripes     $10,000+

Platinum               $5,000

Gold                     $2,500
