Final Thought

Launched in 2006, BVA’s Operation Peer Support initiative offers newly blinded service members an opportunity to share their experiences with peers facing similar challenges.

The Association’s national convention provides the optimal environment for fostering such fellowship as participants engage in recreational, social, and learning activities that offer resources, confidence, and new friends.
