Watch the Blinded Veterans "Give Back" for Christmas 2013 Video Below|
"To promote the welfare of Blind/Visually Impaired Veterans so that, notwithstanding their disabilities, that they may take their rightful place in the community and work with fellow citizens toward the creation of a peaceful world. " "To preserve and strengthen a spirit of fellowship among blinded veterans so that they may give mutual aid and assistance to one another." "To maintain and extend the institution of American freedom and encourage loyalty to the constitution and laws of the United States and of the states in which they reside.
"If you are a Blind or Visually Impaired Veteran, a relative or a friend, or you just want to get involved, write, email or give us a call. We are the Blinded Veterans Association, Georgia Regional Group (BVA-GRG), we are a 501c3 organization specifically established to assist and promote the welfare of Blind/Visually Impaired Veterans. We are here to help veterans and their families meet the challenges of blindness.
I look forward to doing my best for you and the Georgia Regional Group. We have much to look forward to and many challenges to meet. Our primary mission is also one of the challenges; that is to inform all blind or visually impaired veterans of the existence of the BVA and that we are here to assist them with their impairment. We also want to make certain that they know of the blind rehabilitation program that is offered by the VA. Your membership to our group can be beneficial as it provides the blind veteran the opportunity to meet others in the same situation and share information and experiences. We need to be aware of any returning veteran from the desert storm, Iraq and Afghanistan wars and inform them of the BVA mission. Finally, we must make sure all blind or visually impaired veterans have all the vital information needed so they can maintain their level of independence and live a full life. Remember this is your organization and it’s only as good as the people in it and what they put into it. God bless America, the state of Georgia, and the members of the Georgia Regional Group.
