Stories from Past Events

In January 2020 BVA National President Dr. Thomas Zampieri established the Women’s Veteran Group (WVG) and a committee was formed to ensure that the unique needs of our blind women veteran were being addressed, and advocacy efforts tailored. The BVA WVG is honored to have the support of our national leadership team and looks forward to serving our women veterans.
