Understanding Your Veteran Benefits


Whether you’re just getting out of the service or you’ve been a civilian for years now, the Military Children's Six Foundation "Welcome Center" Veterans Advocates can help guide you to the benefits and services you’ve earned. We're located at 609 H Street NE Suite 326, Washington, DC 20002.

Based on where you are in life, your VA benefits and services can support you in different ways. Keep your welcome kit handy so you can turn to it throughout your life—like when it’s time to go to school, get a job, buy a house, get health care, retire, or make plans for your care as you age.
