Providing transitional, financial, employment, and educational assistance.
Acute financial assistance is available to Wisconsin veterans working with a CVSO/TVSO or a Veteran Service Organization in order to fill a critical need or emergency shortfall.
Education and training is essential to a veteran's future. Whether adding to one's military training, gaining new technical skills, seeking a specialized degree, graduate training, etc. the Foundation can provide direction.
Employment assistance for veterans comes in many forms be they benefits, services or programs. The Foundation provides the most up-to-date linkages to programs designed for veterans and their families.
Transition from military service to civilian society can be difficulty for many. In fact, a 2018 Military Family Lifestyle Survey found that 47% of veteran family respondents reported their overall transition experience was "difficult" or "very difficult." And this was for the service member with no medical, physical, family or social difficulties. We can assist.
There are resources available to families of veterans; however in many cases it requires some digging in each State. In Wisconsin we encourage veterans, spouses [surviving spouses], and family members to contact County and Tribal Veteran Service Officers, VSO representatives or one of the many community programs in your area.
Veteran Service Organizations may or may not be Congressionally Chartered, but all have as their primary objective - service to veterans. For those who stood and pledged service to the United States of America there are those ready to serve you. In addition, many of these organizations regardless of title often have an auxiliary or associates branch or unit.
The CDC just released information (5/2020) that people can go about without a mask if outside and many inside areas - except when using public or private traveling, senior or rehabilitation settings, and hospitals. City, state, and business mask wearing may take precedence.
