All Veterans, their spouses, caregivers can get COVID-19 vaccinations from VA

All Veterans, their spouses and caregivers can get COVID-19 vaccinations from VA under the SAVE LIVES Act signed into law March 24.

Covered individuals can receive a vaccine from VA due to the ongoing COVID-19 public health emergency, including Veterans who are not eligible to enroll in VA health care. 



Vietnam War Veterans Day March 29th

On March 29, our Nation will commemorate National Vietnam War Veterans Day on its 50th anniversary. There are several virtual events, live webcasts and 2021 traveling wall schedules posted to help us remember and respect the nine million American men and women – more than six million of whom are living today – who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces during our involvement in Vietnam from November 1, 1955 to May 7, 1975. 


The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund Virtual Wall of Faces is nearly complete but needs help from the public to track down the last few dozen photos. Of the 58,279 names inscribed on The Wall, there’s less than 80 photos needed to complete the Wall of Faces.

IRS delivering third round of economic stimulus payments

Most Social Security retirement and disability beneficiaries, railroad retirees and those who received Veterans’ benefits in 2020 should not need to take any action to receive a payment. As with the first two stimulus payments, the IRS is to send out the new payments the same way benefits are normally paid. Tax Day filing for individuals has been extended to May 17, 2021.
