Such an important series. I’m proud to be a part of an organization that has paid so much attention to veterans and veterans’ organizations like the IAVA whose founders and members found an early home for their message on our platform. While other media companies have ignored or marginalized veterans’ point of view, HuffPost has given them a voice.
I think we’re able to do this because we are not tied to old media news cycles. I also think our focus on bloggers has given a lot of people like Paul Rieckhoff, founder of IAVA (who met Arianna at an airport, carried her bags, and got into a conversation that lead to an invite to blog on HuffPost) a way to amplify their voice and message.
