More about VA's Fourth Mission
VA’s Fourth Mission is to improve the Nation’s preparedness for response to war, terrorism, national emergencies, and natural disasters. Actions ensure continued service to Veterans, and support national, state, and local emergency management efforts.
Being ready and prepared before disaster strikes keeps you ahead when its time to recover and restore.
