The Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee (formally known as the US Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs) was created during the Vietnam War to transfer responsibilities for veterans from the Finance and Labor committees to a single panel. From 1947 to 1970, matters relating to veterans compensation and veterans generally were referred to the Committee on Finance, while matters relating to the vocational rehabilitation, education, medical care, civil relief, and civilian readjustment of veterans were referred to the Committee on Labor and Public Welfare.

The Veterans’ Affairs Committee had nine members in its initial congress and now has a total of 17 members.
