"With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow, and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations."
The most Veterans have served with honor and have sacrificed much in the defense of this nation. That is why the Veterans Administration exists, to serve those who have served. What the average American might not be aware of is that when a service member takes the oath, he or she is promising to protect America against all enemies even if it means giving their own life to do it.
VA Medical Benefits
Eligible veterans enjoy a wide array of medical services. Outpatient care can be provided through many clinics across the United States. These clinics offer primary care appointments and specialty appointments. The VA medical system works much like that of an HMO. Each Veteran is assigned a team which is responsible for the coordination of care for each veteran. The Veterans Administration also owns and operates many VA hospitals and medical centers. Eligibility requirements for medical benefits are: Any veteran except for those with a dishonorable discharge.
