About Veterans' Issues
- ADA: Know Your Rights (US Dept. of Justice)
You’ve been seriously injured while serving on active duty in the U.S. Military — and now you’re back in the States trying to adjust to living with your injury. This publication explains your rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and provides information on where to get assistance.
- Strategies for Serving Our Women Veterans (Dept. of Veterans Affairs – Women Veterans Task Force – 2012 Report)
Women have served in U.S. military efforts since the American Revolution, and were first granted a formal role in the armed forces with the creation of the Army Nurse Corps in 1901. The U.S. Code does not make a distinction between male and female Veterans. However, the reality is that women have not always had equal access to all Veterans' benefits.

- VA Makes Filing Claims Easier and Faster for Veterans (US Dept. of Veterans Affairs – 6/15/10)
As part of Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki’s effort to break the back of the backlog, the Department of Veterans Affairs is reducing the paperwork and expediting the process for Veterans seeking compensation for disabilities related to their military service.
There are several federal laws that provide important protections for veterans with disabilities who are looking for jobs or are already in the workplace. Two of those laws — Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) – protect veterans from employment discrimination.
