Jason Beardsley joins grassroots veterans advocacy group as senior coalitions director
ARLINGTON, Va.—Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) on Friday announced Jason Beardsley will join the organization as senior coalitions advisor, working alongside the premier veterans’ advocacy organization to remove barriers for veterans and to create a better U.S. foreign policy for all Americans.
Beardsley, a veteran of the United States Army and United States Navy, retired Green Beret Master Sergeant, built an extensive resume while in the military. He is a qualified expert in military intelligence, diplomatic security, foreign internal defense, and unconventional warfare and counterterrorism. During his civilian career, Beardsley has worked with veterans and military communities in a variety of roles – from assistant in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, senior advisor to the Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs and Veterans Service Organizations liaison, and national executive director of the Association of the United States Navy.
Beardsley had this to say about taking on his new role:
“In recent years, Concerned Veterans for America has become a familiar name among veterans and those serving in the military. CVA has built a strong reputation and proven track record in driving real change and principled policy to improve Americans’ lives; there is no better organization to continue bringing the veteran spirit of service and sacrifice to the table to find real solutions for America’s toughest challenges. It is an honor and privilege to join this team to continue building off the success of CVA’s last 10 years.”
Beardsley will also work with the Stand Together philanthropic community as director of veterans’ initiatives. His work will include working to remove barriers for veterans and to create a better foreign policy — one of realism and restraint, relying on strength and smarts to ensure security.
