The Gunny is still making us Smile:

The "out-takes" are great.

"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men (or women) with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent." - Calvin Coolidge

Emergency Medical Care for Veterans
Cc: Curtin, Joseph G. <>

The VHA Office of Community Care (OCC) is pleased to provide updated communications products that explain when a Veteran should seek emergency medical care, and how VA can pay for a Veteran's service-connected and non-service connected emergency care from a community provider.

The following resources are now available on this topic:

• Video - Emergency Medical Care<>
• Fact Sheet - Emergency Medical Care<>
• Fact Sheet - Emergency Transportation (Ambulance)<>
• Website - Emergency Care<>

Please help us raise awareness and understanding of when Veterans should seek emergency medical care, including the associated eligibility requirements and payment aspects. This will support greater consistency and better outcomes for Veterans.

Thank you for your help!
