The KWVA is actively involved in helping resolve the fate of our Korea POWs and MIAs. Much information continues to "surface" due to the efforts of many of our comrades. We will post links here to helpful web sites as well as a limited amount of special announcements from time to time.

VA - Former POW Information:

  • VA has benefits and health care programs for former POWs and their dependents
  • VA's benefits for former POWs have expanded in recent years, including new entitlement rules for disability compensation, special eligibility for VA health care and greater access to medication and dental services. Many former POWs may not be aware of the benefits for which they are eligible even if they are currently receiving compensation
  • If you are a former POW not receiving VA benefits or health care, now is the time to apply for benefits and enroll in the VA health care system
  • Each VA Regional Benefits Office and VA Medical Center has a former POW coordinator on staff. VA medical centers have former POW clinical treatment teams
  • Former POWs not receiving VA benefits should contact VA at 1-800-827-1000
