In November 2017, VA launched the Rapid Appeals Modernization Program (RAMP).
RAMP provides a unique opportunity for Veterans with a pending disability
compensation appeal to have early access to the more efficient review
process in the historic Veterans Appeals Improvement and Modernization Act
of 2017 before the law takes effect in February 2019.
Securing a job is an essential step to
exiting homelessness, but for many homeless Veterans employment is not just
hard to find. It can be hard to keep. Veteran Frank Diaz and his Tin Hut BBQ
food trucks and catering service are addressing this issue head-on in
Diaz’s own backyard on the island of Oahu in Hawaii.
For VA to prosper in its mission of serving
our nation’s Veterans, the department must continue to cultivate an inclusive work environment that enables employees
to have a voice while sharing their knowledge and contributing their
talents and abilities.
This week we honor Army Veteran Evelyn M.
Noles Bayer. Evelyn served during World War II from 1944 to 1945.
He served as a Navajo Code Talker with the
1st Marine Division in the Pacific Theatre during World War II.
