Executive Director Message

I am honored to be elected as Commander of this great organization. My commitment to you is to work towards meeting the needs of our veteranís population, their families, and our members. This is made possible by everyone working as a team as we demonstrate our sincerity towards continue association membership growth, advancement and enhancement in the delivery of services, and progressive use of technology. I am committed to ensuring minority veterans are afforded the same opportunities as all veterans with obtaining VA benefits and services. I will work towards advancing our Service Officers knowledge, skills, and procedures that will gain veterans they serve their maximum entitlements.

As we acknowledge NABVETS 35-year history, I look forward to playing a vital role in its future as I pledge to you to provide the leadership necessary for the association growth and longevity. We have the organizational structure to continue to serve the many communities we find ourselves in today and will be in the future.

Expansion of membership benefits and ease of communication will continue to be a priority. Extend your hand as a good gesture in deed for the hand you touch may be a comrade in need.

As members of NABVETS, the above values can serve as guidance in our daily lives as we strive to help and serve other veterans.

Sincerely
BG Robert A. Cocroft
Past Executive Director
