  • Give their name
  • Provide a mailing address
  • Give location and time of military service
  • List suspected or diagnosed conditions.

“Through the short series of questions, veterans can determine whether they’re likely eligible for VA benefits and request to be contacted by a VFW Accredited Service Officer,” said VFW Adjutant General Dan West. “Our system will capture their answers and generate a referral.”

West said veterans can expect contact from a VFW service officer “within one week” of submitting an online form.

Visitors can find out how they can help with VFW’s mission by clicking on “JOIN OUR EFFORTS” at the top right of the screen. Users also can learn some of the benefits created under the Honoring Our PACT Act. 

“Making available is just phase one of our large-scale effort to make certain every veteran meets with us,” West said. “We’ll soon start nationwide promotion and will need your help getting the word out.”
