Veterans Affairs Welcomes New Under Secretary

Joshua Jacobs will serve as the head of veterans benefits.

Secretary of Veterans Affairs Denis McDonough commended the U.S. Senate’s confirmation of Joshua Jacobs as the department’s new Under Secretary for Benefits. This is the first time since 2014 that the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has had a confirmed official in this role. Under Secretary Jacobs will be overseeing the department’s health care programs for veterans, including the implementation of the recently passed PACT Act.

“Veterans, their families, caregivers, and survivors deserve world-class benefits for their service to our country, and there’s nobody better to lead VA in delivering those benefits than Josh Jacobs,” said VA Secretary Denis McDonough. “Josh is an excellent leader who has dedicated his career to advocating for Veterans — and under his leadership, I’m confident that VA will continue delivering more benefits, more quickly, to more Veterans than ever before.”   

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For members of the Senate as they vote on the nominees the president has appointed.
  • For Under Secretary Jacobs as he settles into his new role in the VA administration.
  • For Secretary McDonough to seek God’s guidance as he heads the VA Department.
