  • RESOURCE LIST — Click on the link, then enlarge the view to 200%. The list includes organizations that provide veterans and their families with services in 20 categories, including travel assistance, help with expenses, mental health services, and more. All services are provided for free or at a reduced rate.
  • CAREGIVER RESOURCE LIST — YRF’s one-of-a-kind list features 25 non-profit organizations focused on serving family caregivers of injured service members.
  • CAREER MENTORING — For women veterans, military/veteran spouses, and family caregivers of wounded warriors, the Joining Forces Mentoring Plus program provides free one-on-one personal coaching and professional guidance through YRF’s partners at the Business & Professional Women’s Foundation.
  • NMFA RESOURCE GUIDE — the National Military Family Association’s resource guide for caregivers of injured service members.

DD-214s NOW ONLINE

  • The DD-214 is issued to every veteran to document their condition of discharge — honorable, general, other than honorable, dishonorable, or bad conduct — and getting your hands on a copy is often crucial for employment purposes. The National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) now has a website to help veterans do just that: http://vetrecs.archives.gov/

JOB TRAINING

  • Click here if you or someone you know is an unemployed veteran between the ages of 35 and 60 – help may be available from a new job training initiative called the Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP). It begins accepting applications on May 15, 2012, and the program itself begins on July 1, 2012. There are 99,000 slots and participants are accepted on a first come, first served basis.
  • URGENT VRAP UPDATE!: So far only 77,000 participants have been accepted, and only 27,000 of them have begun using their benefits. The program is only two years long, and by law, applications can only be accepted until September 30, 2013, and the last payment can be made through March 31, 2014. So VRAP participants who do not enroll in school by March of this year will not be able to receive a full 12 months of training. So APPLY, USE the benefit ASAP, or please notify VRAP and CANCEL your Certificate of Eligibility so another vet can use the benefit. Don’t let any of the 99,000 slots to go unused!
