In Support of America's Veterans

Today's Presidential Action

Administration Actions in Support of America's Veterans

Veterans and military retirees have made tremendous sacrifices for our Nation, and President Bush believes America must honor its commitments to our veterans. Because of the President's leadership, the VA is more responsive to veteran needs, and has improved health care, medical treatment, and claims processing times. In recognition of the tremendous sacrifices veterans and their families make, last year the President also signed into law special benefits to existing military retirees who are Purple Heart recipients or were seriously injured under combat conditions, and he is pleased to see that Congress is acting this year to address the issue of concurrent receipt for military retirees in a fair and responsible manner.
