For U.S. veterans, the battle doesn't end with active duty in the armed forces. These courageous individuals encounter unthinkable challenges in their daily lives, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, disability, poverty, and homelessness. These circumstances are often directly related to the hazardous experiences faced during service, and yet, a vast majority of veterans are left underserved or abandoned by the very institutions sworn to help them.
An internal memo from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in 2020 revealed that nearly 20,000 claims for crucial economic support had been wrongfully denied. It wasn’t until 2021 that the PACT Act expanded eligibility and health care for veterans of the Vietnam, Gulf, and post-9/11 Wars. Long-standing claims involving cancer and other life-threatening health conditions were finally recognized, and victims of the tactical herbicide “Agent Orange,” nuclear radiation, and burn pits could receive supplemental compensation. Unfortunately, decades after initial exposure, the VA’s effort was too late for many.
