The Department of Veterans Affairs improves the quality of life for Washington’s veterans, military and their families by increasing awareness and access to appropriate federal, state and local resources. Veterans within the state can receive health care from a variety of facilities including five medical centers, 10 community clinics and four veterans’ homes. Combat veterans who were discharged or released from active service on or after Jan. 28, 2003, are eligible to enroll for enhanced care in the VA health care system for five years from their date of discharge or release. The enrollment period begins on the discharge or separation date of the service member from active-duty service, or in the case of multiple call-ups, the most recent discharge date. Veterans, including activated reservists and National Guard members, are eligible if they served on active duty in combat after Nov. 11, 1998, and have been discharged under other than dishonorable conditions. Go to www.va.gov/healthbenefits/apply/returning_servicemembers.asp.

There are several VA service officers in Pierce County who help navigate the maze of VA services and programs. For a full list of VA resources, locations and hours of operation in Pierce County, visit www.dva.wa.gov/state-county-federal-contacts.
