Paul Rieckhoff, TRMS buddy from the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, was on Colbert last night, and I thought he did a great job. Additionally, he tweeted throughout the evening: "Out for drinks w Colbert Report writers and crew--many of them headed to the middle east. They very cool, and very afraid" - about 15 hours ago from TwitterBerry

So let's hit the Support Your Vet link and help them get their 100K views of the new PSA by Sunday.


  1. Paul's one of the good guys. I've been a supporter and on the IAVA email list for quite some time, and it's been great to see him grow an extraordinary organization from a grassroots effort to one seated with POTUS. Great work, Paul and thanks, CEP, for giving the IAVA a great plug!

  2. Yeah, MP, he is absolutely one of the good guys. Having both grown up in military families, no surprise we are all about a veteran's organization. My dad was one of those vets whose life was changed by the G.I. Bill, and I value highly the work Paul and his compatriots have done to give a new generation of veterans the G.I. Bill they deserve.
