Minority Veterans Program

Minority Veterans Program - DiversityThe goal of the Chalmers P. Wylie VAACC Minority Veterans Program is to increase local awareness of minority Veteran related issues and develop strategies for increasing their participation in existing VA benefits programs for eligible .
