National Association of Senior Veterans – NASV

National Association of Senior Veterans, Inc. (NASV) is a 501c3 non-profit organization incorporated in the state of Florida in 2008. NASV was organized for the purpose of providing direct assistance regarding better living and health services for American Senior Veterans and their surviving spouses by operating a veteran’s support center.

Sorting through papers and VA bureaucracy can be overwhelming to many elderly veterans and their spouses. Elderly veterans in particular, have special needs to consider. First, the veterans are not aware of benefits for which they-or- their spouses are eligible. And the process can be complicated with finding old documents/paperwork, getting new paperwork, and overcoming numerous bureaucratic obstacles. The process without help can take months and years for claims to make their way through the VA. Patience- and- plenty of time is needed, something that many of the elderly veterans don’t have. NASV’s charge is to help guide the vets through the complicated paperwork and appeals system of the Veterans Administration quickly and efficiently. Vets matter to all Americans. We owe our country’s freedom to our veterans and their families. It is a debt that we all are responsible. That debt doesn’t stop when the war is over- it continues from one generation to the next. God Bless America! God Bless our troops! God Bless our Veterans!

It is with great pride that we are able to help our nation’s veterans and families get the benefits that they so richly deserve. The appreciation that we receive from the veterans that we help may seem like a small thing to some people but to our staff, it is the greatest payment that anyone can receive.

Vietnam “Operation Babylift” (OBL) 37th Anniversary

“Operation Babylift”

Operation Babylift was the name given to the mass evacuation of children from South Vietnam to the United States and other countries (including Australia, France, and Canada) at the end of the Vietnam War (see also the Fall of Saigon), from April 3–26, 1975.

The end of the Vietnam War precipitated increased adoptions of Vietnamese children by American families. In April 1975, two years after the Americans signed a cease-fire accord with Vietnam, North Vietnamese troops spread through the South. The war’s end caused hundreds of thousands of citizens to flee the country, fearing for their lives.

With the central Vietnamese city of Da Nang having fallen in March, and with Saigon under attack and being shelled, on April 3, 1975, U.S. President Gerald Ford announced that the U.S. government would begin evacuating orphans from Saigon on a series of 30 planned flights aboard C-5A Galaxy cargo aircraft.

Strength At Home

Welcome to Strength at Home!

To veterans, service members, and military families: thank you for your valuable service to our country.

We know that there are many challenges in the transition from deployment to civilian life.  As a result, we are offering two programs designed to help service members, veterans, and military couples strengthen relationships, and reduce arguments and conflict with relationship partners and others. These programs are part of federally funded research projects.

12 Session Men’s Program:

The primary goals of this program are to help veterans and service members of any conflict era improve anger management skills and prevent arguments and conflict in intimate relationships.

10 Session Couple’s Program:

The primary goals of this program are to help OEF/OIF military couples strengthen their relationship, increase feelings of closeness and happiness, and to prevent arguments and conflict.

The Strength At Home programs are relationship strengthening programs for veterans, service members and their families who are struggling with conflict, anger, and readjustment after a deployment.  Our programs were collaboratively developed by internationally recognized mental health experts at the National Center for PTSD, Boston VA Healthcare System, Boston University, and other academic and clinical institutions serving military members and their families.  Our team leaders are experts in couple’s treatment, anger treatment, as well as trauma and recovery.
