The range of health issues facing America's veterans is both wide and ever-evolving. The American Legion recognizes this and provides valuable health-care information on a variety of conditions, as well as regularly updated information on the Department of Veterans Affairs.
The American Legion’s Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation Division, working with the Department of Veterans Affairs’ Office of Rural Health to develop a Rural Veterans Health Care page on www.legion.org.
From October 2011 to May 2012, The American Legion’s System Worth Saving program focused on challenges veterans living in rural areas face with receiving VA health care. On the Rural Health page, users can download the System Worth Saving rural health report’s findings and recommendations, rural veteran statistics, and information on VA’s rural health programs and initiatives.
For more information or questions regarding veteran rural healthcare programs, please contact the VA&R division via email.
