The article focuses on issues related to Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA). PVA is rich in its volunteers. They go above and beyond whatever is asked of them. They are PVA's legs and arms, and they are very protective of the people they serve. They believe in PVA and its mission. To be quite truthful, without these dedicated people there would not be chapters, and without chapters there would not be a PVA. PVA chapters were started by volunteers, not people with salaries. Some people worked 10-14 hours a day, six or seven days a week, to have PVA chapters.
