Veteran Experience Program

The Veteran Experience Program was established to promote positive experiences for all our Veterans. A fundamental value in VHA is for Veterans and their families, who are served in or through VHA facilities and clinics, to have their priorities and needs addressed in a proactive, convenient, and timely manner. On the Salisbury campus, our Veteran experience advocates are located on the 1st floor of Building 3 in rooms 1056, 1036 and 1035.
