Wounded Warrior Project Testifies on Insurance and Memorial Affairs Legislation Before House Veterans Affairs Committee
WASHINGTON, July 16, 2020 -- Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) veteran benefits training manager Frank Logalbo testified before the House Committee on Veterans Affairs, Subcommittee on Disability Assistance and Memorial Affairs, on WWP-led reforms to the Service-Disabled Veterans Life Insurance (S-DVI) program.
"Veterans with service-connected injuries often find it impossible to purchase affordable life insurance plans on the open market," Logalbo said. "Lifelong disabilities incurred while serving our nation provide reason for many insurance companies to either decline coverage or offer unaffordable policies. Modernization of the S-DVI program is a high priority for Wounded Warrior Project and the warriors we serve, and we believe that this legislation would make significant and long overdue improvements to this critical program. Wounded Warrior Project fully supports H.R. 6013, the Veteran Families Financial Support Act."
