Being There for Veterans—NAAV Attends DC VA Medical Center Ladies’ Night

On Friday, November 18, 2016, the National Association of American Veterans, Inc., President, Chief Executive Officer, and Veterans’ Service Officer, along with other community partners, participated in the VA Medical Center Ladies’ Night sponsored yearly for nearly six years to provide newly transitioning women Veterans with knowledge about VA health care and the many women’s health and wellness programs available. An estimated 250 hundred women Veterans participated in the special event.



NAAV provides assistance with claims and benefits at the DC VA Medical Center Benefits Office every second and third Monday in each month for Veterans who served during World War I, World War II, Korean Conflict, Vietnam Era, Gulf War, OIF, and OEF. Peacetime service includes all periods of active duty other than wartime service. Certain VA and other federal and state benefits are available to peacetime service members. A Veteran is a person who served in the active military, naval, or air service of the Armed Forces of the United States and who was released or discharged under conditions other than dishonorable.



In October 2016, NAAV Veterans’ Service Officer Constance A. Burns with other Community Partners with the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States office in Northeast Washington, D.C., sponsored a special event, “Veterans Service Day,” at the Department of the District of Columbia VFW and Auxiliary Headquarters in Northeast D.C. Veterans and their family members came to learn more about benefits and claims. Most Veterans and family dependents were seeking information about monetary benefits to Veterans and their dependents.
