“Almost 2 million veterans are without health insurance, along with 3.8 million members of their households, a new study finds”. – Healthy Day News
The U.S. military veteran community are not receiving the medical attention they deserve.
“1.69 million military veterans neither had health insurance nor received ongoing care at Veterans Health Administration (VHA) hospitals or clinics.” – NCBI
It is sad to say our veteran community is not receiving the medical care they need.
Many don’t qualify for medical benefits after their time in service due to:
- Lack of documentation during their time in service
- Fear of speaking up if the service member was injured, sexually assaulted, stress, due to shame or retaliation by leadership.
- Lack of education or knowledge of what the service member qualifies for.
- Access to funding.
Because of these factors, many fail to seek healthcare coverage, medical attention, or aid.

Helping our veteran community.
We need to take care of our veterans and unfortunately, the VA cannot facilitate a large majority of the veteran community, so it’s up to each and every person to make a difference in the lives of our service members.
Whether you can donate your time, expertise, or funding we have a responsibility to take care of those who protected us both here and overseas.
