The PACT Act is set to extend health care benefits to the more than 3 million veterans and first responders of 9/11 who were exposed to toxins such as those from Agent Orange and burn pits (the piles of rubbish and waste frequently burned by soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan using jet fuel). The bill also eliminated requirements that prevented veterans from accessing care because they had to prove that their illnesses were caused by exposure to harmful toxins while on duty.
If you’re a Veteran who lives overseas, you remain entitled to the benefits and services you earned through your military service. Most VA benefits are payable regardless of your place of residence or nationality. VA benefits include disability compensation, pension, education and training, health care, home loans, insurance, vocational rehabilitation and employment and burial.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announced it will readjudicate claims for Veterans who served in the offshore waters of the Republic of Vietnam during the Vietnam War. This review is part of the Veterans Benefits Administration’s implementation of the November 5, 2020, U.S. District Court of the Northern District of California decision to readjudicate previously denied claims as applied in Nehmer vs. U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Veterans who were previously denied service connection for an herbicide related presumptive condition due to lack of in-country Vietnam service will automatically have their claims readjudicated.

VFW Foundation leadership and staff are proud to assist VFW and VFW Auxiliary members with service projects that increase their members’ impact upon their communities. The VFW Foundation has budgeted $500,000 in grant funding to support and encourage VFW Post and Auxiliary community service projects throughout the 2021-2022 fiscal year. The grant cycle application period opens Oct. 1, 2021, and will close on July 31, 2022, or when all funding has been disbursed.
Although we emphasize Buddy Poppies on Veterans Day and Memorial Day, it is important to realize that the distribution of Buddy Poppies should be a year-round exercise. Each time a Post participates in an activity where the public will be present, Buddy Poppies should be present as a fundraising tool and simply to recognize our fallen comrades. Where the VFW appears, Buddy Poppies should be a constant reminder that we will never forget those who have perished in the name of liberty. Just as “They Gave, Will You?” is a year-round thing, so should the distribution of VFW Buddy Poppies.
VFW Service Officers are trained experts, helping veterans develop their case with ease by reviewing and applying current law, pertinent legislation, regulations and medical histories.
