Today is the day. After a lot of planning and hard work, VA is launching the first phase of the new look and feel of our homepage The Veterans Health Administration, Veterans Benefits Administration, and National Cemetery Administration homepages have also been revamped.

Over the past few years, we’ve been listening to your input—the Veterans, family members, and loved ones. We heard you: our website was clunky, outdated, and difficult to navigate. Now, we’re implementing the changes you want to see. You’ll notice a new look and feel on our main pages, updated navigation, improved search capabilities, and more up-to-date VA content and information.

Now, we need some more help from you. Throughout the next year, we’ll be rolling out additional changes to VA’s numerous pages and we want your input. Tell us what you like and don’t like about the new websites. Each piece of feedback is useful and we want to make sure that by the end of 2013 we have the best website in the Federal government, according to our users.
