While veterans of all generations have a very positive view of their military service, only one-in-five feel the government treats veterans well and less than half believe they receive the benefits and support they were promised. These are some of the major findings of a landmark survey by DAV.
As DAV documented in its landmark report, Women Veterans: The Long Journey Home, the system that awaits America’s more than 300,000 women veterans is a disjointed patchwork of programs marked by serious gaps in healthcare, housing, other community support services, employment and efforts to eradicate sexual assault.
