It’s important to honor our Veterans, not just on special occasions a couple times a year, but each day of the year. At VHA, we do our part to help our patients that served our country through a wide variety of health care services, as well as personal and professional guidance programs.

We are honored to work with each of our patients and understand the sacrifices they made. It’s that sacrifice that compels us to fulfill President Lincoln’s promise to our Nation’s heroes: “To care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan.”

We invite you to take a moment to learn about some of the amazing ways VHA employees work to honor our Nations Veterans, ways you can too, on the VA Careers Blog.

 You can also read Veterans personal stories and VA services at, where each day we give a Veteran the spotlight as the #VeteranOfTheDay. Want a chance to give back? Do your part and volunteer through the VA Voluntary Service. Over 140,000 volunteers have already dedicated their time to positively impact the lives of Veterans around the country.

Whether it’s volunteering your time or making a career of providing Veterans the best care possible, we hope you’ll Join VHA today.

    Being a retired DAV, my wife and I wanted to volunteer @ our VAMC in Mountain Home, Tennessee. However, on a recent visit to our VAMC, we were informed that we do not have Second Amendment Rights at the VAMC. My wife and I do have “Concealed Carry Permits” and do carry. We will have to find another place to volunteer.
