At today’s VA, especially in the Office of Public and Intergovernmental Affairs (OPIA), we focus on creative and innovative ways to connect with Vets, the media and other stakeholders.

We’re just getting started, and that’s where you come in – sign up for email, join us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. But more than that, we need your help. We want you be part of the dialogue about some of the biggest issues facing our nation’s Veterans. Join us to contribute solutions, especially solutions about how to communicate important facts and messages to Veterans.

OPIA’s mission is to completely change the way we talk to Vets and the media. We want to make sure that we are getting the right message to the right Veteran at the right time.
