NIAC Veterans Campaign

veterans

The National Italian American Council (NIAC) is an advocate for the American War Veterans of all wars and conflicts. It is our mission to advance political legislation, social service programs, and long term care treatment for our brave men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice of serving the United States of America in time of need. The American soldier is the freedom fighter of the world. There is no other nation unlike America where its young have been sent to fight hundreds of battles and wars across the world so people from other nations may experience freedom and democracy. All American citizens must stand united to defend and support our American military so America may remain free. And, those in other nations may continue to feel safe from dictatorship. It is the duty of every American citizen to volunteer in community based programs for our soldiers. We as Americans must not take for granted our liberties, or freedom. As Americans we can demonstrate our respect and appreciation to those who have gone before us to defend our great nation. As Americans we can show our gratitude to our military by helping NIAC advance its agenda in ways of volunteerism, or activism.
