Veteran services and benefits.

    Ask any veteran how they feel, and unfortunely you will have one of the most common set of answers one should never hear. As a veteran, I know and see the concerns first hand and intend to improve the problems facing our veterans, and returning service members.

 

    Few of the key areas that need to be focused are:

- Veteran Physical Health Care. One of the key concerns is timely and proper access to healthcare, and service connected disabilities.

- Veteran Mental Health Care. Access to mental health specialist is a key factor, especially when a veteran gets into their own head. Proper access to needed medication.

- Service Member Health Record Access. Resolving a core issue of the left and right hand not speaking. This would allow records, test, forms, and other essential items to be used by both the Department of Defense and Veteran Affairs in a smooth manner.

- Accreditation and Credential Program. This would allow current industry, community skills and testing define similar practices and specialties to allow a smoother transition to civilian job placement.

- Transition 360 program. While each service provides a transition program to members exiting the service, often it is a check in the box, and seldom provides full support. The intended program would work with the service member, local communities and local veteran services building a complete transition that is beneficial to both the member, but also to the community.

- Direct Era Programs. With veterans from prior eras their needs are unique on their own. There are health, employment, and other services that need to be tailored to their service era.

- Military to Civil Service Programs. This would work in conjunction with the “Accreditation and Credential Program” and “Transition 360” allowing urgently needed positions to be filled by personnel exiting the service in a smooth transition matching exit, and start dates.
