This grant will fund BVA’s Field Service Officers traveling to VA facilities and Blind Rehab Centers, to assist veterans and meet with VA staff about the care and services blinded veterans need. With the Foundation’s help, your gift will count double and keep this important part of BVA’s Field Service Program going. Thanks so much for your support!


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.
