LEGISLATIVE

Both at the National and State levels, our VFW leadership and members are advocating on the issues which affect ALL veterans; and we have a great track record of winning! Among the VFW's most recent and important legislative victories was expanding college education benefits for military service members with the signing of the Forever GI Bill, and ensuring America's service members and veterans receive the care they deserve - whenever and wherever they need it - by passing the VA MISSION Act.

You can see the national priorities by visiting the National VFW Legislative Priorities page.

The things which affect veterans in Ohio are followed closely and you can find out more about specific issues as we publish updates in our News Section.
