Honoring the Greatest Generation: An Aircraft Tribute to WWII Veterans

This Friday, September 25, at 10:00 (ET), join a live stream of World War II aircraft flying over Washington, D.C.


VA has partnered with specialized contract examiners to resume in-person Compensation & Pension (C&P) exams related to disability benefits at their designated contract facilities and not at VA medical facilities. Your local VA Medical Center (VAMC) will still conduct VA medical appointments and testing related to your health care. 



VA has rolled out a new system that simplifies making appointments at VA health care facilities. Veterans in Central Ohio are the first to get access.
