You can recognize these remaining heroes with actions far more meaningful than words. The Veterans Health Care Eligibility Act of 1996 exempted all veterans who served during the Mexican Border Period and World War I from the means test required to enter the VA health care system. It is time to do the same for our World War II veterans.
The American Legion has spoken loudly in support of this proposal. Delegates at our 2017 National Convention in Reno, Nev., unanimously passed a resolution calling for an amendment to the 1996 law which would open access for WWII veterans.
The WWII Veterans Hospital and Medical Eligibility Act would provide VA health benefits to every veteran of World War II, without bureaucratic meddling.
Contact your Senators and Representatives today to tell them to open the VA system to ALL WWII veterans!
