The Battle Proven Foundation, in coordination with state and federal programs, has come to the determination that every vet deserves a chance to be recognized for their service. The Incarcerated Veterans Initiative (IVI) was designed to identify incarcerated vets who have not been given the opportunity for a proper diagnosis by the military for conditions ranging from bi-polar disorder to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). With such a determination we can help vets qualify for the rights and privileges they have earned while on active duty.
