The United States Department of Veterans Affairs has selected the Miami Valley as one of 50 communities across the U.S. that has created a myVeteran support community.
A Greater Miami Valley myVeteran Veterans Moving Forward event will be held Tuesday, May 24, 3 to 6 p.m. in the Apollo Room of Wright State University’s Student Union.
Veterans and their families as well as veteran services organizations are encouraged to attend.
Approximately 100 veteran service organizations, including the Veterans Administration’s Mobile Clinic, will be on hand to connect with vets. Montgomery County RTA and Green CATS will offer free services to Wright State for veterans and their family members needing transportation to and from the university. Veterans should show identification, a DD 214, or pick up a token at the VA Medical Center.
The primary mission of a myVeteran Community is to improve support to veterans and their families by connecting regional veteran service providers, resources, advocates and other stakeholders to former military members.
In 2015, the Greater Miami Valley myVeteran Community was organized under the leadership of retired Col. Cassie Barlow and retired Lt. Col. John McCance.
