Frequently Asked Questions
What is Concerned Veterans for America?
Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) is a non-partisan, non-profit grassroots organization that advocates for policies that preserve the freedom and prosperity that our veterans fought and sacrificed to defend.
What’s your mission?
The goal of CVA is to translate the experience, concerns and hopes unique to veterans and their families into a common vision of freedom. We apply this unique perspective to speak out on issues that threaten to cripple not only our economic and national security, but the spirit of opportunity and liberty that all Americans cherish. We care about how our veterans are treated once they’ve finished service, and we push for meaningful VA reform to ensure our veterans are receiving adequate care.
What kind of VA reforms does CVA support?
CVA supports meaningful reforms that would structurally change how the VA operates and allow veterans the choice of what doctor to see and when. A great example is the Caring for our Heroes in the 21st Century Act, draft legislation recently proposed by Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) that would put veterans in control of their health care by allowing them to access private care if the VA is failing them.
How will My VA Story be used?
CVA will remove any identifying information and share select stories on our social media feeds and website. Behind the scenes, we’ll be aggregating all of the stories, identifying broad themes, and using it to inform the types of reforms we’re pushing for here in Washington.
The VA is failing me. Can you help?
We’re listening. Each of your stories are being read and compiled. We’re looking for broad themes in the experience of veterans, and those themes will help inform the kind of reforms we fight for on your behalf.
If you’re in need of care urgently, we want to direct you to resources that can help you. An American Legion service officer can help you resolve your issues with the VA: find one near you.
