About Us

Veteran Warriors is a 501c3 nonprofit international Veterans’ advocacy, service, and support organization serving veterans, caregivers families, and survivors of all eras.

The Board opted to make the necessary changes to incorporate Veteran Warriors in 2019 to apply for nonprofit status.  The incorporated organization was awarded 501c3 nonprofit status in 2021, retroactive to the incorporated date.

History

rs=w_1300,h_800 (1).jfif

Veteran Warriors is a national Veterans’ advocacy, service, and support organization founded in 2009 by Navy Veterans Lauren and Jim Price.  Together, they worked tirelessly in enterprise-wide advocacy for the VA process and legislative improvements.  What was once a small Facebook page working on local veteran-related issues has blossomed into a thriving nationwide organization with a reach and influence beyond its founders’ wildest dreams.

On March 30, 2021, Lauren Price passed away from toxic exposure-related illnesses from her Iraq deployment.

Today, the Veteran Warriors team continues the mission Lauren started in 2009.  The team serves as a strong voice for the Veteran and family community on all fronts: health care, resources, toxic exposure, caregiver program, survivor benefits, education, and various forms of assistance with navigation and research.

Mission

Veteran Warriors’ mission is to "fill the gap" by identifying deficiencies and offering reasonable resolutions.  Our team provides experienced Hill advocacy, assistance, direction, education, media, outreach, navigation, research, resources, and more for Veterans, caregivers, families, and survivors of all eras.

There is no "one size fits all" in the Veteran community. We approach each need individually to meet the needs of that particular situation. 

 

We strive to be the change for those we serve who feel as if they have lost their "voice" within the bureaucracy.

Vision

In our efforts to address the individual needs of the Veteran community rather than a "one size fits all," we set an annual agenda for primary focus areas.  However, we address all aspects of Veteran, caregiver, family, survivor, and military-related needs. 

Two of our largest projects currently are the VA Caregiver Program and Toxic Exposure, but we assist veteran families with all aspects of interacting with the VA.

 

The VA Caregiver Support Program provides a range of services to family caregivers.  We help Veterans and their caregivers with applications, navigation, representation, and understanding of the evaluations and operational processes.  We also guide appeals of incorrect adverse decisions, denial of participation, or inappropriate assignment to the level of care required following our thorough review of the medical records and the veteran's needs and eligibility.

 

We are active participants in a Toxic Exposure Task Force (TEAM Coalition) along with other Military Service Organizations (MSOs) and Veteran Service Organizations (VSOs). We provide expert and personal testimony regarding Burn Pits/Toxic Exposure.  This includes specialization in the dangers of exposure and the illnesses that may result and working with others to shape and enact the required legislation and inform the necessary Veteran's Health Administration (VHA) care for affected veterans. 

Assistance with navigating the VHA is needed to ensure veterans receive the care they require - and have earned.

 

Transitioning service members, families, survivors, and Veterans of all eras are supported by our team with a consistent point of contact to provide answers and assistance. VA Care is comprehensive but can also be intimidating to family members seeking healthcare for their veteran, and this is another way Veteran Warriors step in to help.

Influence

Veteran Warriors is well known for standing our ground, even if it means standing alone when it comes to doing what is right for the Veteran community. 

Our team regularly participates in high-level round-table discussions and Congressional hearings regarding VA specialty programs, specifically the VA Caregiver Program and Burn Pits/Toxic Exposure.  We have testified before Congress on VA disability claims and legislation for toxic exposure.  Veteran Warriors sued the VA and won on the point of Supervision, Protection, or Instruction definition in our lawsuit regarding the VA Caregiver Support Program, requiring a new regulation.  The ruling from our lawsuit brought the Interim Rule for Legacy participants in the VA Caregiver Program of September 2022, which extended participation for three years.
