The early responses to my New Greatest Generation cover story have been fabulous. But I did make one mistake that needs to be rectified. It concerns Paul Rieckhoff’s political efforts in the early days of Iraq Afghanistan Veterans of America. Here’s Paul’s response:
I did not start VoteVets. I started IAVA PAC, which was strictly and always bi-partisan, and designed to support vets of any and all parties. In the interest of protecting IAVA’s greater mission to better the lives of new vets and their families and to keep us out of partisan political [uh, disputes], we folded the PAC. Jon Soltz left, and he started VoteVets with Jeremy Broussard.
And another: Seth Moulton worked at a hospital in the Haitian highlands, not a the main hospital in Port Au Prince.
