Telling Veterans stories is often more than writing them – sometimes one picture conveys just as much.

We share photos of what’s happening not only around VA, but at Veteran events across the country on VA’s Instagram and Flickr social media channels. These photos come to us from medical centers, VA national cemeteries and from the memorials and monuments where we as a nation remember and honor our Veterans.

Here are the posts from the @deptvetaffairs Instagram channel you liked the most in 2016.

    What happened to the bill to give all veterans of Vietnam presumptive evidence of agent orange exposure if you have a disease on the recognized list, I have CLL (lukemia) . My doctors recognize it but VA beauroctates don’t. What do they know that the Dr’s dont?
