The Blinded Veterans Association, CFC #10513, is proud to be part of the Combined Federal Campaign. The mission of the CFC, as stated by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, is to promote and support philanthropy through a program that is employee focused, cost-efficient, and effective in providing all federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all. The Blinded Veterans Association is listed in the Military Family and Veterans Charities category in the Best of the CFC. Contact for more information.

The Blinded Veterans Association (BVA) is an organization of blinded veterans helping blinded veterans. Through our service programs, regional groups, resources, and advocacy before the legislative and executive branches of government, we hope to make life better for blinded veterans. We also hope to be there with encouragement and support. There is no charge for any BVA service and membership is not a prerequisite to obtain help. All legally blinded veterans are also eligible for BVA’s assistance whether they become blind during or after active duty military service.

Responding to current legislative issues affecting America’s blinded veterans, the House VA Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations on May 29 focused solely on testimony presented by, left to right, Terry Kebbel, Glenn Minney, and Travis Fugate, and VA officials from the Office of Patient Care Services and the Office of Information Technology.
