We were glad to participate at the recent 65th Annual Conference of the National Association of State Directors of Veterans Affairs (NASDVA) last weekend in Lincoln City, Oregon.
Through our sponsorship of the event, Veterans Advantage hosted a breakfast, and briefed state representatives about the Veterans Advantage benefits program. The guest speaker was Veterans Advantage Advisory Board member Paul W. Bucha, Army Veteran and Medal of Honor recipient, who spoke about the importance of supporting all who serve, particularly through hiring Military Veterans.
The State of Oregon hosted the event, thanks in large part to Jim Willis, the Director of Oregon Department of Veterans Affairs, and NASDVA President Dr. Linda Schwartz. Dr. Schwartz has served as Commissioner of The Connecticut Department of Veteransâ€™ Affairs since 2003.
Everyone at NASDVA is doing a terrific job, and we encourage all Veterans to keep in touch with their state Veterans Affairs representatives. The better you keep informed, the better life will be for all Veterans.
