MTV will be airing a special episode of "The Real World", featuring IAVA.

Dear Michael,

Have you been looking for an excuse to watch some reality television? Well, now you've got one.

This Wednesday, March 18th, MTV will be airing a special episode of "The Real World", featuring IAVA.

One of the cast members this season, Ryan, served a tour with the Army in Iraq. Then, during Veterans' Week in November, Ryan spent some time with IAVA. He visited our New York office, marched in the Veterans' Day Parade with our member veterans, and attended IAVA's Second Annual Heroes Gala with his roommates. Now, on Wednesday, March 18th, the episode showing it all will air on MTV.

This is a great way to introduce people to vets' issues, and to IAVA. Click here to invite your friends to watch the episode with you. All you need is a TV and access to MTV.

As the sole veteran in the cast, Ryan had the courage to speak out about the challenges he faced during his transition back to civilian life. And he does it in front of an audience of millions. His pride in his service and his loyalty to the military leave a lasting impression.

Click here to invite your friends and family to join you in watching "The Real World."

Even if you don't have people over, remember to tune in at 10pm on Wednesday, March 18th.

Thank you for continuing to stand with us.
