There is something Wrong with How Government Deals with Veterans

Now it’s time to talk about all the “Programs” that are supposed to be helping #Veterans. I think the government can make better use of funding if they just cut checks directly to veterans. Everybody wants to “Thank” Veterans for their service, but few actually provide good assistance.

And why are veterans disjointed from the military, for the most part, once they separate or retire?  The same energy should go into supporting Veterans directly by the military when they leave, as you had to get us to join.  Everybody sees the “big picture”.  So, you should lead by example.  Read More

Military Veterans Resource Center, Columbus OH

I was in Columbus, OH visiting over the holidays and ran across a great resource for Military Veterans when I went for a walk in ‘teen-degree weather.  It’s called the Military Veterans Resource Center.   I was only planning to stop in for a minute to check out what the employment situation was in the local market and to perhaps hand out a few cards to local merchants.

It was absolutely a treasure find of information and the Veterans Services Specialist who assisted me was very helpful and knowledgeable.  I think this would be a great resource for veterans in the local area; and other veterans should visit their web site: http://milvetsrc.org .  Some of the services they offer and provide are counseling, information about Veteran services, and they operate a food bank.  They have several locations in Ohio (Columbus, Chillicothe, Dayton and Hamilton), and although hours of operation may vary between locations, I believe they are open during weekdays.  Telephone numbers are listed on the site for each location.  You can call before visiting to make sure you can be assisted.

For me it was a great experience.  (I think I’d like to get involved with organizations and agencies like this as part of my career change.)   I believe any Veteran needing help can probably find it at a center like this –or at the very least be pointed in the right direction.
