“I thought this would be a good way to help the Veterans of tomorrow. Improving healthcare for Veterans requires assistance from many parties, including Veterans. Being part of MVP provides me an opportunity to enhance the care I receive, as well as my fellow warriors. It’s an opportunity again, to be part of something larger than myself.”

“Why not help future Veterans? It’s so easy. The women Veteran population keeps growing, so it’s important for me and other woman Veterans to get involved and help our future sisters in arms.”

“MVP is working to gather enough samples and data to give researchers what they need to help improve our healthcare. There are a lot of important questions that need answers, by allowing access to my information, I’m helping future Veterans get answers to the questions.”

“As a Veteran, I’m always willing to help my fellow Veterans. It’s what we do! Collecting data from 1 million Veterans, is mind boggling. I think about how much this data will help develop cutting edge treatments for future Veterans, it gives me the same sense of pride as when I joined the Navy!”

“I think it is important to always understand and recognize that any advancements that come, come from those who have been through an experience to be willing to share it, and share whatever we need to – to include our blood – to advance technology for those who serve in the future. I understand the importance of that. I believe it’s just a part of our service, and so I’m happy to help out. And especially if you say that you don’t get that many women Veterans coming through, then I think it’s even more important for those of us who know about it to just participate. It’s a small sacrifice, if it’s even a sacrifice.”
