Honoring Our Veterans
On Veterans Day, we honor all veterans across Indian Country. It is IHS' mission to improve health care access and delivery to tribes, and this is especially true for veterans. IHS and the VA are working together to increase access to and improve quality of health care and services to American Indian and Alaska Native veterans. Through a renewed partnership, IHS and VA continues coordination, collaboration and resource-sharing.
