Veterans Issues

Veterans

As a Vietnam veteran, I believe every veteran living in American Samoa deserves quality health care and VA services.  This is why I fought hard to make sure that the VA approved my request to establish a new clinic in American Samoa.  Only 156 new clinics will be established in the U.S. and one will be located in our Territory.

If you need assistance with other VA matters, including filing a claim, requesting records, etc., please contact me in Washington DC by phone at (202) 225-8577 or by fax at (202) 225-8757.  Please provide me with a brief description of your problem and include your phone number, social security number, any supporting documentation and a signed statement giving me permission to discuss your case with the Veterans Administration.

You may also contact me in American Samoa by phone at (684) 633-1372 or by fax at (684) 633-2680.  You can also reach me by email at faleomavaega@mail.house.gov.

I will make sure your voice is heard and that your case is given fair and expeditious consideration.  For further information about the VA, click here to learn more.
