On an ongoing basis, the National Association for Black Veterans, Inc. (NABVETS) will provide strategic advocacy on behalf of its membership with Congress and the federal administration; state administrations; county and city legislators; and other agencies and organizations.

NABVETS will provide personal advocacy on behalf of “ALL” Veterans seeking claims against the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and will foster community development by creating positive lifestyles for Veterans and their families. NABVETS will generate and preserve the historical record for minority Veterans.


NABVETS is a professional organization with a vision:

*To reach 50 percent of the national Black Veteran population as its membership base.
*To establish State Departments and Command Councils in every state and in every city with a population exceeding 250,000.
*To reach younger Veterans who are on active duty or who have recently separated from the military.
*To serve “ALL” Veterans; but, especially low-income Veterans.
*To obtain financial viability (generate sufficient income to meet all of NABVETS’ needs).
