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.
This publication comes as a follow up to DAV’s 2014 landmark report Women Veterans: The Long Journey Home, which focused on the challenges women encounter transitioning from military to civilian life and helped usher in numerous policy and legislative changes to improve programs and services for women veterans.
