U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)

U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) mission is to fulfill President Lincoln's promise: "To care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan" by serving and honoring the men and women who are America's Veterans. VA's core values focus minds on their mission of caring and thereby guide our actions toward service to others. These values — Integrity, Commitment, Advocacy, Respect, and Excellence — define their culture and strengthen dedication to those they serve. They provide a baseline for the standards of behavior expected of all VA employees.
