Defense Authorization Act expands benefits for disabled veterans

(DAV National) WASHINGTON — Disabled veterans and their caregivers will soon have access to a number of expanded benefits thanks to the signing of the “John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019”—some of which have been longtime legislative priorities of DAV (Disabled American Veterans).

Beginning in January 2020, service-connected disabled veterans and their caregivers will be eligible to use base commissary stores and Morale, Welfare and Recreation facilities. In addition, veterans with a service-connected disability rated as total will soon be eligible to use space-available (Space-A) travel.
