Links for Veterans 

Veterans Administration (VA)    www.va.gov Our goal is to provide excellence in patient care, veterans' benefits and customer satisfaction. We have reformed our department internally and are striving for high quality, prompt and seamless service to veterans. Our department's employees continue to offer their dedication and commitment to help veterans get the services they have earned. Our nation's veterans deserve no less.

Vet Center   www.vetcenter.va.gov Vet Centers provide readjustment counseling and outreach services to all veterans who served in any combat zone. Services are also available for their family members for military related issues. Veterans have earned these benefits through their service and all are provided at no cost to the veteran or family.

American Legion   www.legion.org The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic, war-time veterans organization, devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is a not-for-profit community-service organization which now numbers nearly 3 million members, men and women, in nearly 15,000 American Legion posts ​​​worldwide.

AMVETS   www.amvets.org For more than 60 years, we in AMVETS have taken to heart the credo of service set forth by our organization's founding fathers. In so doing, we endeavor to provide our fellow veterans with the type of support they truly deserve. This outreach effort takes many forms, from the professional advice our service officers offer on earned veterans benefits to our legislative efforts on Capitol Hill to the work done by our hospital volunteers.

Disabled American Veterans   www.dav.org   Made up exclusively of men and women disabled in our nation's defense, the Disabled American Veterans is dedicated to one, single purpose — building better lives for all of our nation's disabled veterans and their families.

Veterans of Foreign   www.vfw.org Are fraternal, patriotic, historical and educational; To preserve and strengthen comradeship among its members; To assist worthy comrades; To perpetuate the memory and history of our dead, and to assist their widows and orphans; To maintain true allegiance to the government of the United States of America, and fidelity to its constitution and laws; To foster true patriotism; To maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom; And to preserve and defend the United States from all her enemies, whomsoever.
