For over 40 years, VVA has steadfastly advocated for veterans living with illnesses resulting from toxic exposures during their service.

Since that time, the list of approved “presumptive” illnesses has gradually grown, along with the number of active-duty military, veterans, and families who were exposed to toxins while serving honorably for our country. 

Our battle for healthcare and compensation for these invisible toxic wounds hasn’t faltered. We are determined to achieve justice for Vietnam veterans, alongside younger veterans, whose health has also been impacted by toxicants from their military service.
