The aim of the study was to investigate the correlation between the veterans’ acheievment of the services provided by the Martyrs and Veterans Foundation and the quality of life.

Instrument & Methods: In the correlation cross-sectional study, 383 veterans of Shiraz City were studied in 2012. The subjects were selected via systematic random sampling method. Data was collected by the WHO Quality of Life Scale and a researcher-made  questionnaire assessing the achievement of the services provoded by the Martyrs and Veterans Foundation. Data was analyzed using Pearson correlation coefficient and Chi-square tests and the structural equations.

Findings: The mean age and mean schooling years of the veterans were 52.7±7.7 and 11.5±3.8 years, respectively. The achievement of total services provided by the Martyrs and Veterans Foundation and the health and care services negatively correlated with the quality of life. Nevertheless, the achievement of housing services and of livelihood services did not significantly correlate with the quality of life. Fitness of the structure model was confirmed based on the conducted investigations.
