PRESIDENT'S WELCOME LETTER TO ALL VISITORS

          I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE ONLY A MOMENT OF YOUR TIME TO WELCOME YOU TO OUR WEBPAGE. 

    It is without saying what a Veteran means to me and especially the Vietnam Veteran. Also thanks to all  the     men and women who supported this unpopular war. You have to stop and think what the thought  process     of this war has been on these Veterans and the years with no Welcome Home. Many went about  their life as     silent men and women trying to forget the personal scarring memories. 

    Take a few moments and get to know the Vietnam Veterans of North Carolina. The volunteers who support     our daily  mission, the areas where all Chapters are located and our Agent Orange Educational Campaign     information. 

    In closing feel free to contact myself, the officers or any of the Chapters for more information and 
    answers to your questions.

                                        WHAT DOES THE 4TH MEAN TO YOU ?????

    Someone asked me recently what, exactly, Independence Day means to military families and I     did not have an immediate, good answer. There’s no question what Memorial Day and     Veteran’s Day mean to me as a military spouse. But July 4th? I had to give that one a little bit     more of a think.
    And so here it is: To me, July 4 is a time of a pride in my Soldier and all service members for     loving American independence so much that they are willing to go out and defend it. Of     course, like all of our patriotic holidays, it is also a time to remember those who gladly gave     their lives for that freedom.
    While others may wave flags and recall those who bravely signed their names on that     independence declaration long ago, my heart swells with pride for those who are willing to sign     their names today, promising to defend that independent with their lives.

                    What about you? What does the 4th of July mean to your military family?

    

     TRICARE Website: Easier to Use

    On July 24, TRICARE.mil unveiled a new website design to give TRICARE’s 9.6 million beneficiaries clear and easy  access to     benefit information. Â Users now have more ways to browse our site. We’ve added easier navigation, a login button for quicker       access to our partner’s secure services, and a section on the homepage dedicated  to life-changing events. We’ve also     streamlined and reorganized our content so users can find what they’re  looking for in the way they’re expecting.

    We’re listening to our beneficiaries. Â Our new design is the result of an ongoing review about what beneficiaries  are looking     for when they visit TRICARE.mil. We are using satisfaction surveys, analytics, and user feedback to highlight key information.     We are also closely monitoring our most visited pages and our most frequent search  terms on TRICARE.mil. Some of the most       popular things that beneficiaries look for include:

              What plan can I use?
              What’s covered?
              How do I find a doctor?
              How much will I pay?

    We paired these findings with an extensive review of 34 government and private sector health insurance plan  websites. This     allowed us to apply common industry practices of  website navigation, organization, content,  naming convention, and     readability.

    TRICARE.mil is a powerful educational tool for beneficiaries to learn about their health benefits and stay updated on the latest     changes. Visit TRICARE Website to see the new design and explore the TRICARE benefit.
     VVA supports S.2738, Toxic Exposure Research Act of 2014 introduced by Senatora  Jerry Moran-KS and Richard          Blumenthal-CT

              VIETNAM VETERANS OF AMERICA
              IMMEDIATE RELEASE
              August 1, 2014
              No. 14-17
              Contact: Mokie Porter
              301-996-0901

    Sen. Jerry Moran joins With Senator Blumenthal To Introduce Toxic Exposure Research and Military Family Support Act of 2014

    (Washington, DC) – “We applaud Senator Jerry Moran (R-KS) and Senator Richard Blumenthal (D- CT) for joining  forces to     introduce The Toxic Exposure Research Act of 2014, said VVA National President John Rowan. “Among the so-called invisible     wounds of war are those brought home by troops that may not manifest for decades. And most tragically, the damage done by     the toxins may pass on genetically to the children and grandchildren of our nation’s warriors. Our children are the innocent     victims of our military service.”

     This bill, (S.2738), instructs the Department of Veterans Affairs to establish a national center for research on the diagnosis     and treatment of health conditions of the descendants of veterans exposed to toxins during service  in the Armed Forces.     Further, S.2738 calls for the establishment of an advisory board to oversee and assess the work of the center to determine     health conditions that result from toxic exposure and to study and evaluate cases of exposure. The advisory board will advise     the Secretary of VA on issues related to research conducted at the National Center and the particular benefits and services     required by the descendants of individuals exposed while service  as members of the Armed Forces.

     The Military Compensation and Retirement Modernization Commission (MCRMC) will conduct a town hall meeting on the     evening of Wednesday, June 25 2014 in Fayetteville, North Carolina. The Commission requests participation from anyone who     resides in the general vicinity of Fayetteville. The Commissioners will hear testimony from witnesses on matters surrounding     the programs that compensate the members of our Unformed Services and that therefore support the long-term health of the     All- Volunteer Force.

     VA Press Release

    The VA is committed to caring for the needs of Veterans who have lung and other health  conditions possibly  related to their     deployment to the Southwest Asia Theater of Operations. The Airborne Hazards and Open Burn Pit Registry will enable VA to     better assess  the health of veterans exposed to burn pits and other airborne hazards.
