12 - Fourth Mission
The VHA exists for not one, but four special reasons. First, to provide veterans with the healthcare they deserve. Second, to aggressively pursue advances in medicine and technology. Third, to provide education to the next generation of medical professions. Last but not least, the VA steps in whenever and wherever the American healthcare system is overwhelmed, particularly during times of crisis.

38 - VETERAN HOMELESSNESS
When Monte Daugharty returned from his deployment he struggled with his experiences and turned to the VA. There, he found camaraderie, connection and a future. After getting back on his feet, he stayed with the VA to help battle veteran homelessness during the COVID-19 pandemic.
78 - CHOOSE VA
There are dozens of healthcare options available, and choosing one isn’t easy. For many veterans, VA healthcare makes the choice a whole lot easier. VHA is a leader in innovative medical technology, and over a third of their employees are veterans themselves.
