PACT Act Eligibility

On August 10, 2022, President Biden signed the Sergeant First Class Heath Robinson Honoring our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics Act—known as the PACT Act. The PACT Act is one of the largest health care and benefit expansions in VA history. It helps us provide generations of Veterans and their survivors with the care they’ve earned and deserve.

 I wanted to forward along resources to learn more about the law as well as provide information to share in your district and state with Veterans and survivors. Below is a landing page to help “spread the word” on VA health care eligibility [link] and links to fact sheets (with additional language offerings on the eligibility website) that help you talk about the Department’s efforts to reach all Veterans and survivors.

Unit 32 American Legion Auxiliary members

The Department of Colorado has a new communication tool called Constant Contact/The Generator. As Unit 32 ALA Secretary, I can email all the current active ALA members through this program. What a significant improvement because in the past, I was only reaching about 30 members. But this system reached 182 members in November! So if you see a different-looking email that says, Constant Contact and Unit 32, please open it and read it! I will include our monthly meeting minutes and other important information.

If you are thinking, "I haven't seen that."  Please look in your spam box. It may be there. I plan to send another Unit 32 Constant Contact newsletter by the first week in January. Contact me with questions:
