BLINDED VETERANS ASSOCIATION
125 NW Street
Alexandria, Alexandria City
The Blinded Veterans Association works to promote the welfare of blinded veterans so that, notwithstanding their disabilities, they may take their rightful place in the community and work with their fellow citizens toward the creation of a peaceful world.
BVA’s primary efforts include a National Field Service Program, advocacy before Congress and the Department of Veterans Affairs, scholarships for spouses and dependent children and grandchildren, and special initiatives such as Operation Peer Support/Project Gemini in which older veterans connect with those recently injured in Iraq and Afghanistan, including those from BVA’s sister organization in the United Kingdom.
