- Who We Are
- Speak Up!
- Take Action
The Veterans Affairs Assistance Committee of the Modern Whig Party exists to help Whig veteran members and veterans who are not members with veterans’ issues. The committee will organize the Modern Whig Party response to difficulties that veterans may be having with their benefits or any other veteran issues. The Committee will also help veterans’ families as well. The Veterans Affairs Assistance Committee also is able to help active duty military as well as their families.
The committee is made up of Whig members who are veterans or active duty and have experience dealing with the Department of Defense and Veterans Affairs. The committee will listen to requests for help on behalf of the Modern Whig Party and then recommend a course of action for the party to take.
How can the Veterans Affairs Assistance Committee help? We do not promise anything but we will use our membership size and media connections to bring pressure against those who are hindering our veterans, active duty military and their families in a way that is not right.
