We’re sending in reinforcements!From April 1-3, ten teams of CVA veterans and military families will swarm Washington, DC for Vets on the Hill 2014. This “boots on the ground” effort will include over 200 targeted Capitol Hill meetings — all laser focused on VA accountability and CVA‘s legislative agenda.
Support Vets on the Hill 2014 by signing up for a CVA Strike Team — there are more National Days of Action to come.
Together, we can overcome dysfunction in Washington, DC and get something done for our veterans.
Building on our 2013 #MillionVetBacklog effort, the 2014 #VAaccountability Project is an ambitious project to bring long-overdue accountability to VA. In addition to information about VA problems and solutions, the project’s website — www.VAaccountability.org — will provide concrete ways for CVA members and all Americans to demand accountability at Veterans Affairs.

In case you missed it on Tuesday, January 21st, Admiral Mike Mullen joined Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) and the Weekly Standard to discuss the security threat of our mounting national debt and what can be done about it. Bill Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard, and
On August 20th, 125 days after the launch of our Veterans Backlog Petition we delivered it to the White House. 125 days was intentional; that’s how long it takes for a VA claim to be “backlogged.”
The Department of Veterans Affairs is failing our veterans – plain and simple. Despite years of promises, over 903,000 disability and compensation cases are pending (headed toward 1 million), with 70% backlogged for more than 125 days.
The backlog has increased by 2,000% since 2009. Utterly unacceptable.
