Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation is the oldest of the American Legion Auxiliary programs. It is a unique and rewarding program, whose purpose is to initiate, sponsor and participate in programs and services that assist and enhance the lives of veterans and their families; ensuring restoration and/or transition to normally functioning lives, including physical, mental, social and vocational needs.
Your Department Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation Committee for 2012 - 2013 is committed and excited about serving our veterans in all aspects.

Members of the Department of Texas have been asked to accomplish three objectives for the year 2012 - 2013.
Objective #1: To increase the number of Auxiliary members and community members who provide regular volunteer service to veterans and their families at VA Medical Centers (VA Volunteer Service or VAVS), at Veterans State Homes and Hospitals, in community settings (Field Service) and from their homes (Home Service).
Objective #2: To raise awareness in your communities about the ever-increasing number of homeless veterans, especially women veterans and those with children. Units and members should work with other community partners to address this issue in their communities.
Objective #3: Support rehabilitation of veterans through art therapy by fulfilling the Auxiliary’s annual financial obligation as a presenting co-sponsor of the National Veterans Creative Arts Festival (NVCAF).
There is a new Texas only program for Female Veterans! They need your help.
