Legislation Expands Vet Center Eligibility for Guardsmen

Bipartisan legislation in the House would expand eligibility for counseling at Department of Veterans Affairs facilities across the nation to members of the National Guard.

The Vet Center Eligibility Expansion Act would authorize the VA to provide care for members of the Guard, Reserves and Coast Guard who have served “during emergency situations in the wake of a national emergency, major disaster, civil disorder, or drug interdiction operation.”
