About the Committee:

As our newest committee, our Gulf War Veterans are focusing on how to find their voice in the organization.  The movement to push for a Gulf War Committee came because our Gulf War Veterans were often lumped in with our Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans.  However, they have different experiences and goals to make JWV meaningful to them.  If you are interested in being a part of the Gulf War Veterans Leadership Committee, email us at jwv@jwv.org.
