Should Congress restrict the VA from providing benefits based on era of service?

From Washington Post: "The sacrifice of caregivers is too often overlooked. For Donna Joyner and Jason Courneen, it’s more like they were bypassed."

Every day hundreds of thousands of Caregivers sacrifice their time and effort to ensure their veteran has a quality of life commensurate with their service. Many of those Caregivers are not afforded the same benefits solely because of the era in which their veteran served. This inequity must be corrected. Please visit for more information.

“On behalf of DAV, I applaud Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler for the inclusion of these provisions in the MilCon-VA Appropriations Bill. Just over one year ago, I had my first child. As a disabled Marine Corps veteran who served in Afghanistan and is enrolled in VA healthcare, this provision will ensure my sisters-in-arms and I are receiving the healthcare we earned through service.” – DAV Deputy...

Yesterday DAV and 42 partner organizations sent a letter to Congress, urging them to enact S.591/H.R.1472, the Military and Veteran Caregiver Services Improvement Act of 2017.
