A Strong Voice for America's Veterans
Our veterans have served our country with distinction all over the world. But let’s face it – when many veterans come home to their families, their needs aren't being met. They need jobs. They need quality, affordable health care. In short, they need people in their corner to make sure our country honors its promise to those who have served.
AFGE Veterans brings together AFGE members who are veterans to speak out on the issues that matter to you and your family.

After serving my country, I am finding out that the Administration wants to cut the budget of federal agencies by stripping jobs and lowering pay and retirement benefits of veterans just like me. That's why I'm asking that you oppose the Administration's proposed budget that severely cuts my pay and retirement. Will the (Representative/Senator) support me and the work I do for veterans in (YOUR CITY) by voting against these budget cuts?"
