Never Forget Their Sacrifice
In recognition of Veterans Day, United Spinal Association would like to thank those who have bravely defended our freedom.
Our wounded warriors face many challenges in receiving critical VA benefits so they can regain their quality of life and independence. We firmly believe that all veterans deserve access to opportunities that allow them to live meaningful, productive lives.
United Spinal and our VetsFirst program have fought tirelessly to protect the rights of our nation’s veterans. Our goal for over 70 years has been to ensure America’s disabled veterans, their spouses, dependent family members and survivors receive healthcare, compensation, rehabilitation, and other benefits they have earned.
VetsFirst is the embodiment of our dedication to ensuring that all veterans—past, present, and future—receive the care and attention that they deserve and that they are physically, emotionally, and economically restored to the greatest extent possible for injuries suffered during their military service. With your support, the services we provide mean freedom. They mean dignity. They mean independence.
Here are some of the ways we are making a life-changing difference for a veteran returning home with a spinal cord injury or other disabilities after bravely serving our country:
We offer veterans and their family members free access to valuable resources and critical one-one support from counselors knowledgeable on a wide range of veterans-related issues, including VA health care and benefits. Get help now.
Discrimination against disabled veterans produces barriers to housing, employment, transportation, health care, and other programs and services. Without protections provided through the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Rehabilitation Act, the Fair Housing Act, the Air Carriers Access Act, and other similar laws, disabled veterans would be unable to participate in society in the same manner as other Americans. Join the fight.
Veterans face complex conditions such as traumatic brain injury, poly-traumatic injuries, and post-traumatic stress disorder. These conditions affect every aspect of their lives—health, employment, finances, and family and social relationships. Our full-service approach to providing resources for veterans focuses on all of these concerns. Find the right resources.
We connect veterans in need of support with knowledgeable peer mentors who have adjusted and progressed in overcoming the challenges of living with disabilities. Our mentors offer advice, guidance, resources and real life experience to help navigate all aspects of daily life. Connect with a mentor.
