Veterans of all service eras often face a number of service-connected health conditions that require continuous treatment. As many as 300,000 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans – nearly 20 percent of returning troops – are coming home with symptoms associated

Many Americans continue to face an unnecessary barrier to employment as a result of faulty or incomplete criminal records released by the FBI for use in employment and licensing decisions. Local law enforcement agencies routinely report arrest records to
the FBI; however, these same groups often fail to report important information on the final outcome of an arrest or disposition of a criminal case.

or child of a veteran who is permanently and totally disabled for a service-connected disability, the surviving spouse or child of a veteran who died from a service-connected disability, the surviving spouse or child of a Veteran who was at the time of death
rated permanently and totally disabled from a service-connected disability, and the surviving spouse or child of a military member who died in the line of duty.
