We had two bills we kept an eye on and supported. The Governor signed legislation making NY VVA a "benevolent order" which means we are in same catergory as the traditional organizations. Not bad after 30 plus years we are reconized with the VFW's and Legions and such. We will now be entitled to office space at the Capitol if availble.
The second one he vetoed. That is the one that would permit all veterans who are public employees and honorbaly discharged to purchase retirement service credit.
As you can see we have been updating this site. Dana our Web Administrator has been working hard to bring this site to be the best.
Comments and suggestions are welcomed. Tweaking is still ongoing so be patient.

VA and Walgreens are national partners, providing no-cost flu shots to enrolled Veterans of the VA health care system.
From August 1, 2015 to March 31, 2016, enrolled Veteran patients nationwide have the option of getting their flu shot at any of Walgreens’ 8,000 locations in addition to their local VA health care facilities.
Walgreens has the capability to electronically send vaccination information to the VA electronic health record (EHR). The VA-Walgreens national partnership is part of VA’s eHealth Exchange project.
Last year’s national pilot program ensured that many Veterans got their no-cost flu shot at their local Walgreens, satisfying their wellness reminder because they either found it more convenient or did not have a scheduled appointment at a local VA health care facility.
For more information please visit: http://www.ehealth.va.gov/immunization.asp
NOTE: There are two types of Flu shots: one for veterans under 65 years old and one for veterans older than 65 years old. Also, there is a new Pneumonia shot for veterans over 65 yearsold (Prevnar). Please check with your VA provider or private healthcare provider for further information.
"Finally a Voice" The Birth of VVA DVD is still availble for $15. You can order by going to:
nvbdc.org or send your order to NVBDC, 325 Cresent Ln., Detroit, MI 48207.
If you wish I have some copies and send that to email@example.com.
All should have a copy. All chapters should have copy and show at a meeting. Maybe there will be renewed interest in VVA. Maybe bring in new members. Who knows but 15 bucks is worth a try and you can help us contributers for this film project and DVD's pay off our debts.
