On Veterans Day, the Department of Veterans Affairs introduced its new Web site design for www.VA.gov.
The new layout, which is just one part of VA's efforts to improve communication with the veterans' community, is designed to be more visually appealing and user friendly.
The new Web site contains the same tabs with the same information to help veterans navigate the VA system, but the layout has been changed to more prominently display timely information, such as news and veterans' health alerts.
As VA overhauls more than 500 Web sites and 80,000 unique Web pages, department leaders have asked for patience, in the event that minor glitches occur during this week's changeover.
