Make your voice heard!

The DAV is working with the IRS to find out ways to help veterans make ends meet, especially immediately after discharge from the service. They want to be able to provide links to community services and tax breaks that vets may not know about. Take the survey and make your voice heard!

From the desk of our National Commander:

From the desk of our National Commander:

Senator Tammy Baldwin (WI) introduced S. 1153, the Veterans Acquiring Community Care Expect Safe Services (ACCESS) Act. This bill would give VA the authority to deny, revoke, or suspend the eligibility for certain community health care providers from treating veterans based on having a medical licensure violation or when a private provider has entered into a settlement agreement for a disciplinary charge related to the practice of medicine.

This measure ensures the safety of veterans and is in accordance with DAV Resolution 173, which calls for, “…strengthening, reforming and sustaining a modern, high-quality, accessible and accountable VA health care system” and “… creating integrated networks with high-quality community providers where needed…” S. 1153 would contribute to improving the quality of providers within such integrated networks by helping to preclude certain health care providers when VA is aware they have a documented record of endangering patient health or safety.

Please join DAV in supporting legislation to ensure that only the best health care practitioners treat our nation’s ill and injured veterans. Please use the prepared e-mail to write your Senators today.

Thank you for your support of the DAV Commander’s Action Network.

It takes three days and each mile honors a fallen soldier. The route is from Tucson to Phoenix and goes through Globe and Gilbert. The website has many ways you can show your support. We appreciate anything you can do!

Please Support: Legislation to Improve Access to Child Care for Veterans In Need of VA Mental Health Care Services

Legislation to Improve Access to Child Care for Veterans In Need of VA Mental Health Care Services

Congressman Brian Higgins (NY) introduced H.R. 3368, a bill that would improve access to child care services for veterans receiving certain Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) health care treatments including intensive or regular mental health care services or other types of health care deemed appropriate by the Secretary.

Veterans who are the primary caretakers of their children often cite lack of child care as a significant barrier to accessing needed medical care services-especially specialized services for war-related mental health conditions.  H.R. 3368 would authorize VA to provide child care at an on-site VA facility, reimburse a private licensed child care agency for such care or collaborate with other federal agencies for the service helping to remove a known barrier for ill and injured veterans with child care responsibilities to access essential VA health care services.

Please use the letter below to urge your Representative to cosponsor and support passage of H.R. 3368-legislation to improve access to child care for veterans in need of VA mental health or other critical medical care services.

Thank you for your efforts and continued support of the Commander’s Action Network.
