Spirit 365! Continues – Donate to National Veterans Service
We have embraced the holiday season with selfless acts of giving to our veterans, their families, and our communities through our “Spirit 365.” I encourage you to continue this spirit as we begin our journey to welcome in the New Year. Retired General Colin Powell once stated: “My responsibility, our responsibility as lucky Americans, is to try to give back to this country as much as it has given us, as we continue our American journey together.”
Let us start our journey into the New Year by donating to National Veterans Service.
The VFW’s National Veterans Service (NVS) helps veterans, service members, and their families obtain the benefits they deserve – at no cost. The National Veterans Service provides a nationwide network of 300 VFW Service Officers who can help veterans navigate the Veterans Affairs System. VFW Service Officers assist America’s veterans every step of the way once they are ready to file a claim. This is a service the VFW is proud to offer to anyone seeking assistance with the claims process.
National Veterans Service works to ensure veterans receive quality, timely and accessible VA Healthcare which includes:
- Hospital care
- Outpatient care
- Specialized health care for female veterans
- Alcohol and drug dependency treatment
- Medical evaluation for disorders associated with military service, exposure to Agent Orange, radiation or other environmental hazards
Donations may be sent to the VFW earmarked for NVS. Checks should be mailed to:
VFW National Headquarters
406 W. 34th Street, 11th Floor
Kansas City, MO 64111
