Those who made the Greatest Generation truly great are nearly gone. According to VA’s 2021 statistics, of the 16 million U.S. veterans who served during World War II, less than four hundred thousand remain. Most of these veterans are already using VA services – The National Center for Veterans Analysis and Statistics notes that in 2016 VA’s benefits utilization rate for male World War II veterans was 73.6% and 67.3% for female veterans.
Do your part by supporting the WWII Veterans Hospital and Medical Eligibility Act. To find out more about this act and let congress hear your voice, to go the American Legion Legislative Action Center. Let our WWII heroes have access to the VA without the bureaucracy.
