At today's VA, especially in the Office of Public and Intergovernmental Affairs (OPIA), we focus on creative and innovative ways to connect with Vets, the media and other stakeholders.
We're just getting started, and that's where you come in – check out our issues page, sign up for email, join us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter ( Yes, I tweet). But more than that, we need your help. We want you be part of the dialogue about some of the biggest issues facing our nation's Veterans. Join us to contribute solutions, especially solutions about how to communicate important facts and messages to Veterans.
OPIA's mission is to completely change the way we talk to Vets and the media. We want to communicate with each of the over 22 million veterans, their families and their survivors in their preferred medium, tone, time and frequency. We'll get there faster if we go together.
