"Provide Leadership - Encourage Teamwork - Focus on Mission"
Mission: Members of the Marine Corps League join together in camaraderie and fellowship for the purpose of preserving the traditions and promoting the interests of the United States Marine Corps, banding together those who are now serving in the United States Marine Corps and those who have been honorably discharged from that service that they may effectively promote the ideals of American freedom and democracy, voluntarily aiding and rendering assistance to all Marines, FMF Corpsmen and former Marines and FMF Corpsmen and to their widows and orphans; and to perpetuate the history of the United States Marine Corps and by fitting acts to observe the anniversaries of historical occasions of particular interest to Marines.

In this first year the IDVA has made several changes in the way we do business. A new Veteran Service Center has been established as a one stop shop for Veterans. Almost 100 of Indiana's employers have become Veteran Opportunity Partners to put our Hoosier Veterans to work.
With a complete change of senior leadership of the Indiana Veterans Home we are on the edge of raising the Home's rating from 2 Stars to 5 Stars (in one year)!!!
In my life time I have lobbied on local, state, and federal levels for one thing or another. These last 2 sessions of our Indiana General Assembly has taught me even more about the democratic principles this country is built on. There have been 16 measures passed in the last 2 sessions to benefit our Hoosier Veterans. While that is great, it comes with the price of someone in our state government must see that these measures are implemented and yes guess who does alot of that...with the help of my Team at IDVA we get it done.
The Team at IDVA have been hand picked not only for their qualifications, but for their heart and dedication to serving our Veterans. I am proud of the IDVA Team and the many things accomplished this past year. Within the same budget left us, we have added a Director of Training and Service (to work with our County Veteran Service Officers), Director of Education and Employment (to ensure our Hoosier Veterans are recieving their educational benefits and can find a job), Women Veterans' Program Coordinator (to assist our Hoosier Women Veterans), and are working to add a Director of Care (to work for Hoosier Veterans to ensure they are receiving deserved care).
Now we have asked for a top down review of IDVA and a look at the best practices of agencies like ours from around the country. Our intent is to implement those best practices as they apply to Indiana to make Indiana a place Veterans will be proud to live.
I could go on and on about the many things IDVA has done, but I encourage to experience it yourself at our newly designed website www.in.gov/dva
Needless to say, I believe all the hard work and long hours are worth the effort.
