POW/MIA Recognition Day

Around 82,000 Americans remain missing from World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Cold War, the Gulf War and other conflicts. Friday, Sept. 17, is National POW/MIA Recognition Day, when Americans are asked to pause and reflect on the sacrifices made by the military men and women who are imprisoned or unaccounted for as a result of their military service.

As part of the day of recognition, held each year on the third Friday of September, Americans and businesses should also fly their POW/MIA flags, which commemorate U.S. service members who are recognized prisoners of war (POW) or are missing in action (MIA).

VA Claims and Appeals

COVID-19 delays, benefits changes for Blue Water Navy  and Agent Orange presumptives have added to the claims workload and backlog. 

Vietnam Veterans and their survivors who filed and were denied benefits for one of the three new presumptive conditions, will have their cases automatically reviewed without the need to refile a claim

If you filed a VA Form 10182 with the Board of Veterans Appeals between February 19, 2019, and March 23, 2021, and believe it may have been improperly rejected as untimely- CLICK HERE
