 Government Relations

There are some twenty-one-and-a-half million veterans in the United States, of which almost two-thirds never interact with the VA. Most are ignorant of the array of benefits which they have earned by virtue of their military service. Even the one-third of vets who do interact with the VA’s healthcare system and/or its benefits administration are not familiar with much of what is available to them, to their families, and to their survivors.

Top Priorities:

  • • Gaining the Fullest Possible Accounting
  • • Addressing the Legacy of Toxic Exposures
  • • Fixing the VA
  • • Organizational Reform of the VA
