We know that understanding your benefits can get complicated. That's why The American Legion created a state-by-state guide to veterans benefits. From health-care services to hunting and fishing license exemptions and free passes to state parks, the new online guide details state and federal benefits alike for those who have served the nation in uniform, and their families. In some states, different benefits are available for veterans with service-connected disabilities.
VA Reaches Out to Veterans about the Health Care Law
WASHINGTON (Aug. 6, 2013) – The Department of Veterans Affairs has launched an
awareness campaign and a new website, to let Veterans know what the Affordable
Care Act means for them and their families.
“VA encourages eligible Veterans who are not enrolled in
VA’s health care system to take advantage of the world-class
care we provide to the men and women who have served this
Nation in uniform,” Shinseki added.
Veterans can apply for VA health care at any time by visiting
