Veterans' Organizations


VetsFirst is a program of United Spinal Association that directly assists veterans and their eligible family members obtain the benefits they are entitled to, deserve and need.

We advocate for all generations of veterans, including individuals living with post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injuries.

Our advocacy efforts go far beyond offering words of support and encouragement. We take this fight to Capitol Hill to bring attention to issues that matter most to the men and women who proudly served our country.

VetsFirst’s network of National Service Officers provides free assistance, resources, and representation for veterans struggling to navigate the intricate and often confusing VA claims process.

We connect with over 2,000 veterans annually through our call center and online help desk. Our staff tackles each case individually, taking the time to discuss self-help tips and assist with questions on military separation, claims appeals, and state benefits. We offer assistance and representation in claims for benefits and services before the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, other Federal and state agencies and legal representation before the U. S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.

In addition to providing individual support and counseling services, VetsFirst offers timely news and information across the spectrum of issues presently impacting veterans, including guides on self-help, state benefits, separating from the military, as well as exclusive feature stories on military health care and VA funding and compensation.
