Help Support Our Veterans
American Coalition for Injured Veterans PAC is a non-partisan independent expenditure-only group established under Section 527 of the tax code. Through the support of like-minded concerned citizens we have pledged to push and fight government for stronger legislation and elections of candidates that support our Veterans,
Through your much needed donations, we will push for the election of politicians and passage of legislation that support all of our nation’s Veterans and their families. Some of these issues are:
- To advocate for the expansion and extension of the Department of Veterans affairs Vocational Rehab and Employment program, in order to put more of our Heroes back to work.
- To push for legislation and funding to expedite our Veterans Compensation and Pension exams, our Heros sacrifice their mind and body for us and we owe it to them to expedite these services.
- Prioritize increased Mental Health support and benefits to all Veterans coping with PTSD
- Supporting legislation that will give our Veterans increased preference points when applying for Federal employment and make Veterans preference points a priority when negotiating Federal Government Contracts.
- Advocating in the halls of congress for an expansion of all aspects of the GI bill, to put our Heroes through college.
We don't care which political party someone is from,
we care about veterans.
