A Celebration of the American Veteran – MVAT Virtual Gala
The MVAT Foundation’s first ever virtual fundraiser, A Celebration of the American Veteran, will take place on Sunday, November 8 at 5:00pm PST. The event is being held on the cusp of Veterans Day because America’s veterans are facing increased challenges in achieving post service career path success due to the pandemic. This unfortunate situation is exactly the type of challenge that our Heroes Linked program was created to surmount.

Our Heroes Linked program provides critically needed post-military service career building for your young veterans and their spouses as well as those Gold Star survivors whose family member made the ultimate sacrifice. It is more important today than ever before and we need increased support to ensure it continues to serve America’s veterans and their families. This year alone nearly 200,000 men and women will leave the military, looking for their next chapter in life. The challenge is immense.
