We are grateful to the millions of American veterans who have selflessly served our nation. For many veterans with disabilities, their sacrifice does not end with their service or injury: veterans experience high rates of unemployment, homelessness, and chronic health problems. Our nation’s obligations to veterans with disabilities include:

  • Quality health care;
  • Employment opportunities;
  • Educational and training opportunities;
  • Community support; and
  • Support for families.

AAPD monitors current legislation and advocates for benefits and services and provides information and resources to veterans with disabilities and their families.

3.3 million veterans are currently receiving VA disability compensation.
