Changes at Veterans for Common Sense

The Board of Veterans for Common Sense is sorry to announce the departure of Patrick Bellon as executive director of Veterans for Common Sense. Patrick will be moving on to take on bigger challenges, and we wish him the best.

Since 2002, Veterans for Common Sense has been at the forefront of national security and veterans issues, and during his year as executive director Patrick has continued that work, helping to put a public face to the issues returning Iraq and Afghanistan face, as well as working with our legal team on the lawsuit VCS vs. Shinseki, which is now before the Supreme Court.

Though we are sad about his departure, the mission continues. Over the coming months, VCS will continue pursuing our landmark lawsuit, as well as working to ensure that returning veterans of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq receive the assistance they need.

During the transition, if you need to contact VCS, please call or email board member Charles Sheehan-Miles ( for policy issues or Paul Sullivan ( for media inquiries.

As always, thank you for your support of Veterans for Common Sense.
