Your Federal and State Legislators

Making a Real Difference is Quick and Easy—Be an Involved Advocate!

There are opportunities to bring firsthand knowledge of military and veteran experiences to the table.  Your participation can contribute to passing better-informed federal and state laws as well as guide the development of policies, rules, and regulations. 

For example, health care and other benefits and services for female servicemembers and veterans have very slowly evolved, lagging behind actual need, since the passing of the 1948 Women's Armed Services Integration Act.

Much after-the-uniform legislation is needed to ensure that women with military service--in and out of uniform, at home and abroad--receive a full-spectrum of care and benefits throughout their lifetimes.  Click on the links below to follow your legislators' activities, stay current, and access helpful tools.  Let your legislators know what is on your mind via e-mail, a letter, a call, and/or a visit.
