VFW LEGISLATIVE ALERT

URGE CONGRESS TO PASS VETERANS ACCESS, CHOICE AND ACCOUNTABILITY BILL TODAY!
     
 

Friend,

Your action is needed immediately on critical legislation.

House and Senate VA leaders reached a compromise on a bill that will begin to fix the VA health care system. H.R. 3230the Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014,provides:

  • access to VA care with an expansion of contracted care in non-VA facilities.
  • new hiring authority for additional medical professionals.
  • renewal of 27 VA outpatient clinic leases.
  • more authority for firing VA executive employees.
It also accomplishes longstanding VFW goals of providing in-state tuition for all GI Bill recipients and Frye Scholarship benefits to spouses of service members who died in the line of duty.

Most importantly, it will provide veterans access to the care they have earned and desperately need now!

The VFW demands that every member of Congress vote "yes" on this critical piece of legislation before they leave for summer vacation.

Call or email your legislators today and urge them to vote "yes" on H.R. 3230the Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014, today. Tell them this bill will ensure veterans who are waiting too long for a medical appointment will finally receive timely access to the care and services they have earned, and that those responsible for denying care will be held accountable. Demand that Congress do the right thing and pass the compromised bill today!



WESTGATE'S MILITARY WEEKEND 2016


VFW Post 1054 had an amazing patriotic gathering at Westgate's 2016 Military Day this past month. If anyone is looking to visit the disney area for a vacation in the future, we highly recommend their Orlando hotels and military discounts. We thank them for their support for veterans and active duty military everywhere, and for the free vacations they give away each year.
