CAMPAIGN IN ACTION

Our collective efforts have successfully fought for better body armor, secured funding for VA health care, addressed veteran backlogs in the VA, protected and enhanced the Post 9/11 GI Bill, and played a pivotal role in ensuring the passage of the Clay Hunt SAV Act to reduce military and veteran suicides – improving access to quality mental health care for millions of our nation’s veterans.
