THEY FOUGHT FOR US. NOW WE FIGHT FOR THEM.
Veterans from every era, every conflict, face terrible barriers to the care and respect they deserve.
Help Our Heroes
Your gift of time and money will help the NVRA improve the lives of our veterans, and help us to carry our message to the world. Whether you can donate money or time – or both – we deeply appreciate your support.
Welcome to the website of the National Veterans Rights Association, a unique U.S. veteran resource that helps our home-bound troops after they’ve served, and fights for them to get the benefits they deserve. If you’re a veteran, browse our site for resources and the latest information – and subscribe to our blog and podcasts. If veterans affairs are important to you, please help us carry on our mission with a generous donation. — Stu Steinberg, Chairman & CEO, NVRA
FROM THE FRONT LINES
The latest in the ongoing battle for veterans rights
SERVING THE DESERVING
We lose 22 veterans to suicide every day. There are 23 million veterans in our great country and a large percentage of them currently do not receive the medical care and monetary compensation they so rightfully deserve. Today, there are 60,000 homeless veterans in our country and this number is rising quickly as more service members come home from war.
THE PAPER CHASE
Imagine filling out three pages of paperwork to try and get medical care, or 12 pages of paperwork to get disability compensation benefits. You wouldn’t like doing it, but you would anyway. Now imagine that you have a brain injury that prevents you from paying attention, or focusing. And you are too frustrated or too proud to get help getting past page two.
HOW WE HELP
The NVRA helps our veterans with how-to videos; claims assistance; help establishing new veterans programs; and referrals for financial, housing and employment assistance. But the project of which we’re the most proud is a one-of-a-kind documentary, which will take the viewer inside the hearts and minds of these veterans who put their lives on the line for the country they love.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Our objective: to continue and expand our assistance to these deserving Americans … and to complete an important documentary that will, for the first time, tell the truth about the way veterans are treated in America today. But to continue to expand our services, we need your help – either in the form of your service or a monetary donation. We appreciate your time and your generous gift!
