Automatic Enrollment of Veterans Returning From Combat Zones Into VA

A bill in the House of Representatives H.R. 1460 would provide for the automatic enrolement
of veterans returning from Combat Zones into the VA medical system.

This bill would benefit all veterans returning from combat zones, by immediately placing the
veteran into the VA medical system, allowing these veterans access to VA hospital care and
medical services at Department of Veterans Affairs medical facilities.

It would also provide them with a veterans identification card. and a list of all VA facilities
within 100 miles of the veteran's home.

This bill would greatly increase the ease of veterans getting the health care they need, and
hopefully decrease the hardships faced by many as they apply and then wait long periods
to become enrolled in the VA system.

Our country must provide the best possible care to ALL veterans, and remove the stumbling
blocks and delays that are currently in place, and allow veterans the choice to enroll in the
VA medical system.

Contact your Representative ask them to become a cosponsor to H.R. 1460.
