Building Better Lives for Disabled American Veterans and Their Families.
A congressionally chartered veterans service organization founded in 1946, has developed a unique expertise on a wide variety of issues involving the special needs of our members-veterans of the armed forces who have experienced spinal cord injury or dysfunction.
Our goal is to provide excellence in patient care, veterans’ benefits and customer satisfaction. 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.
