A program between the VFW and Student Veteran's of America (SVA), was established to help be a direct link for Veteran's experiencing difficulties accessing their benefits. Any student veteran who is experiencing difficulty in accessing their GI Bill or other VA benefits, or believes they have been wrongfully denied these benefits, can now e-mail the VFW at firstname.lastname@example.org. Veterans Service staff will acknowledge receipt of each inquiry within 24 hours during the workweek, then either intervene with the VA on behalf of the student veteran or recommend other courses of action.
