Veterans lives matter
We are on a mission to leave no veteran behind
NAMVETS of America works to ensure that all Veterans – regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or religion and equal access to resources, information and benefits. We particularly focus on Veterans of Color because they face persistent obstacles and challenges in accessing the benefits for which they sacrificed to achieve. Studies have consistently shown a persistent disparity in access to housing, employment and VA Benefits between Veterans of Color and the broader Veteran population. It is the goal of NAMVETS of America to leave no Veteran behind because the lives of all Veterans matter.
