Founder’s Statement

We are an Association of Veterans and their families concerned about the Quality of Life and Care of our Nation’s Veterans.

We are concerned about the growing number of Homeless Veterans estimated at over 40,000 nationwide and the current suicide rate of Veterans and active-duty service members that average over 20 per day.

As of 2019, the number of Veterans in the United States was over 19,200,000. Many of them are not aware of the many benefits and services they have earned and are available to them through the VA.

Many Veterans are also eligible for “Veteran Preference” in hiring by State and Federal agencies throughout the Nation.

Our goal is to ensure that all Veterans and their family members become knowledgeable about their benefits, services, employment opportunities and the paths to obtaining them.
