Cape Cod Veterans News


Today marks an important day and a decisive victory for seriously disabled veterans who were wounded or became ill prior to September 11, 2001, as well as for their family caregivers.

VA Secretary Robert Wilkie finally announced the long-awaited certification of its new information technology system for its caregiver support program, which means that starting today, veterans from World War II, the Korean and Vietnam war eras with severe injuries or illnesses that occurred on or before May 7, 1975, are now eligible for the Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers (PCAFC). A second expansion phase—currently expected to begin two years after this initial expansion—will cover veterans whose injuries or illnesses occurred between May 8, 1975 and September 10, 2001.
