Congressman Pittenger has considered it a privilege to assist thousands of North Carolina veterans.

Congressman Pittenger will be retiring at the end of 2018, and so staff need the remainder of his term to complete the hundreds of active cases. As a result, no new casework can be accepted at this time. If you are a veteran in need of assistance, please contact Senator Richard Burr or Senator Thom Tillis. Here are a few of the most commonly asked questions concerning the Veterans Administration:

Senator Richard Burr

Senator Thom Tillis

How can I  get a copy of my millitary records (discharge, medical, etc.)?

Most military records are stored at the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis, Missouri.

Visit the National Archives website for more information.


How can I get the medals I was awarded during my service but never received?

Military medals are also an issue handled primarily through the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis.

In most cases, it is faster to get medals if you work through a congressional office. Please contact Senator Burr or Senator Tillis if you are in need of assistance.


How can I get my VA claim or appeal processed faster?

The Veterans Administration currently has many claims pending for various types of benefits. Because of that, many veterans feel that their case might be overlooked or handled improperly.

I am always glad to help in these situations. At my request, the VA will "flag" a particular case and keep me updated throughout the process. However, it is important to know that I cannot act as the "representative" on a person's VA claim. You may still want an attorney or veterans representative to help you with this. My actions will not affect the work done by the person you select as your representative.

Visit the Department of Veterans Affairs website for more information.

If you would like my help with a VA matter, please contact Senator Burr or Senator Tillis.
