A think tank report being released Tuesday calls for the creation of a single federal entity to oversee and coordinate national veterans programs and policies that are now spread among at least six federal agencies apart from the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The proposal is part of a “National Veterans Strategy” being released by the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University, which argues for a more holistic approach to how the financially strapped country should care for veterans after more than a decade of war.
