New Organization for Transgender, Transsexual Veterans
[US] - A new organization called Transgender American Veterans Association (TAVA) has been formed to advocate for fair and equal treatment of transgender/transsexual veterans and active duty service members, both from the military and the Veterans Administration.
The organization plans to educate the US Military and the Veterans Administration on gender-identity-related issues which are becoming more common. TAVA hopes its efforts will foster a better understanding of transgender and transsexual people in this part of the US government.
Currently, TAVA exists as a Yahoo groups list and is actively seeking the input and assistance of persons interested in working on issues that effect transgender and transsexual military personnel and veterans. Interested persons are encouraged to join the list. There are no membership fees at this time.

We will work toward building this new organization from the ground up, so all skills are welcome. "TAVA wants you!" And remember, "We served, too."
