Several Vet organizations report bad treatment of transgender veterans by VA (from Palm Center)

The Transgender American Veterans Assocation (TAVA) conducted a survey indicated substandard treatment of transgender veterans by the Veterans Administration. The survey was published by the Palm Center at the University of California at Santa Barbarab. The TAVA press release (Aug. 21, 2008) is here.

The report was also presented on the American Veterans for Equal Rights (AVER) here.

The report (by Monica Helms) also appears at “Vets Do Ask Do Tell” among its press releases here. This version of the report seems to include more of the statistical survey details inline.

Visitors will want to look at the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell Project” at the Palm Center, here. The Palm Center used to be called the Center for the Study of Sexual Minorities in the Military.
