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.
Section 5132 of the House NDAA and Senate NDAA amendment 5963 would exempt WWII veterans from the means test needed to receive VA healthcare services.
Contact your Senators and Representatives today to tell them to open the VA system to ALL WWII veterans!
