According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are approximately 26 million veterans in the United States. As of January 2007, more than 1.6 million U.S. servicemen and women had tours of duty in Afghanistan and Iraq. When not on active duty, more than 20 percent of these vets do not have health care coverage, and many more are unaware of the hundreds of benefits to which they have access.
