Where do you go when you return from combat and need help readjusting to civilian life? These Veterans found that Vet Centers – VA’s storefront centers staffed by combat Veterans who understand what it’s like to transition – helped them the most. There, they got connected to community resources, VA benefits and services, and found someone to listen to their experiences. [From VAntage Point]

Initially, I served with the United States Army Reserve in St. Cloud, Minnesota. I was a technical engineer, which means that I learned how to do so soils testing, drafting, and surveying. (I think it’s funny that I now work on a totally different kind of survey as a researcher.) [From VAntage Point]

In this episode, Julia McGirr, fellow with the Office of Health Equity, is joined by Dr. Ernest Moy, executive director of OHE; and Kayla Williams, assistant secretary, Office of Public and Intergovernmental Affairs. Moy summarizes the findings of the LGB Veteran Health Chartbook. Since VA does not currently collect data on the sexual orientation of Veterans, OHE partnered with the National Center for Health Statistics at the Centers for Disease control. This enabled them to use data they collected from national surveys on the health and health care of different Veterans groups. [From VAntage Point]

During Black History Month, today’s #VeteranOfTheDay is Army Veteran Marcia Anderson, the Army’s first African American female major general. Once a shy child, Marcia Anderson never imagined that her future military career would mold her into a confident, bold woman. While registering for classes at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska, she found the Army Reserve Officer Training Corps. [From VAntage Point]

We honor your service, Marcia!
