AVA has been a positive influence for me in my transition to civilian life. During my post military job search, which wasn’t going according to plan, AVA reached out to me to encourage and assist. After landing a post-retirement job, I wanted to help AVA give back to other Veterans transitioning to civilian life. AVA does a tremendous amount to mentor and assist Veterans.

I cannot thank AVA enough! I was digressing and slowly falling back into some of my old "bad habits" of fighting with PTSD symptoms that were debilitating. AVA didn't hesitate after I went to them! In just a few days after they reviewed my case, I was being prepped and completed my second SGB injection and hopefully my last, but I will take it again if I feel myself falling back into that hole!

Acadiana Veteran Alliance is a welcomed addition to Louisiana veteran support groups. What impresses me about AVA is the multi pronged approach it implemented to take care of veterans. Educational support, numerous community partnerships, veteran health advocation, and veteran employment support are just a few staples this group provide. I encourage everyone to give AVA a hard look because they are here to assist and grow the success of our Louisiana veterans.
