“To care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan.”
– President Abraham Lincoln
President Lincoln articulated for the nation a basic truth: that those who have made the greatest sacrifices in service to their country deserve their country’s service in return. And as our nation’s Veterans know all too well, service requires action.
Fulfilling the promise that President Lincoln made on behalf of the country is the mission of VA. It’s also the chosen responsibility of the physicians, nurses, allied health and other health care professionals who work every day to honor the service of our Veterans by caring for them with compassion, dedication and exceptional skill.
VA is guided by a set of core values we call ICARE:
Our ICARE values are central not only to our service but to our very identity, guiding our decisions, our interactions, and our sense of who we are and why we’re here.
VA offers America’s doctors, nurses, allied health and support professionals a unique opportunity to comfort and care for Veterans and their loved ones in life-changing ways. Today, we invite you to help us fulfill America’s promise to our Veterans. Discover the joy and satisfaction of giving back to those who have served our country—search open positions and apply.
