We are living in uncertain times. The COVID-19 pandemic and our response to it has led to a situation that most of us have never experienced. One thing that that you can be sure of is our commitment to providing services to our state’s veterans.
Roughly one out of every five veterans who has served in a combat zone will be diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) at some point in their lifetime. Just over 17% of post-9/11 service members have Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI).
Memorial Day is the federal holiday set aside for honoring and remembering those who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. It is observed every year on the last Monday of May.
You might notice a fresh look around here — and there’s an exciting reason why. On April 10, 2019, we rolled out a new and improved veterans.wv.gov. The goal is to make it easier for you and your fellow veterans to access the information you need to thrive in civilian life.
