Any help you can give us in getting this word out will be greatly appreciated.
The issue of Women Veterans Health Care and Disability Claims issues for Women is top priorities for the VFW and hearing directly from Women Veterans will assist us in framing the debate here in Washington.

Women Veterans VA Health Care and VA Disability Claim

 The VFW is interested in the timeliness, quality, and accessibility of health care female veterans are receiving at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) health care facilities.

We would also like to know if VA is meeting your expectation of privacy during both office check-in and during the actual physical examination.

We are seeking comments regarding experiences you have encountered both negative and positive. Please send to vfw@vfw.org, using the subject line Female Veteran Concerns.

In addition, if you have questions about your VA disability claim please contact us at the same email address listed above.
