Our Mission:

The ASVA is a 501(c)(3) organization that provides student veterans and military-affiliated students with resources to support the body, mind, and spirit through higher education into employment.

Our Goal:

To help student veterans connect with one another on campus for camaraderie, to share information about local community veteran resources, and to create a culture within the local community that supports veteran’s academic success and leads to future employment.

During the week of Thanksgiving, the ASVA partners with the Campus Veterans Association (CVA) at the University of Alabama to complete a 150-mile ruck march between the university’s stadiums, Jordan-Hare Stadium and Bryant-Denny Stadium. Ruckers carry a 22lbs rucksack representing the 22 veterans a day who are lost to suicide. The items in the rucksack are donated to the Alabama State Veterans Homes, Homeless Veterans of Alabama, and Three Hots and a Cot.
