NABVETS History: NABVETS was initially known as “The interested Veterans of the central City (IVOCC) and established by seven (7) Vietnam Combat Veterans. In 1969, this group was incorporated in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and later reorganized in 1973 as National Association for Black Veterans, Inc. In 1989. NABVETS created the Center for Veterans Issues, Ltd. (CVI) to provide technical assistance to NABVETS for project implementation. CVI is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit, administrative program development and technical assistance organization that provides service to minority, women and low-income Veterans Service Organizations. For over 40 years, NABVETS has led several campaigns to bridge the void for mainstream services to all Veterans.
