Acute financial assistance to Wisconsin veterans working with a CVSO/TVSO or a Veteran Service Organization fills a critical shortfall.
Education is essential to a veteran's future. Whether adding to military training, gaining new technical skills, or seeking a specialized degree, graduate training, etc.
Employment assistance comes in the form of many services and programs. The Foundation provides the most up-to-date linkages to programs designed for veterans.
Transition from military service to civilian society is 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.
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 who stood and pledged service to the United States of America. In addition, many of these organizations regardless of title often have an auxiliary or associates branch or unit.
