Hey folks, with the government shutdown happening I felt it was real important to share resources for military families and veterans.
We’ll try to keep it current.
- VBA call centers (except education) to remain open during shutdown. Education call centers close tonight (10/7). More here.
- The government shutdown affects many of the quality of life programs that the Department of Defense (DOD) provides to service members and their families worldwide. Rosemary Freitas Williams, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Military Community and Family Policy, weighs in about what’s still open and what’s closed…
- VA medical centers & clinics will remain open for Veteran health care services during a government shutdown.
- Here’s the VA Federal Guide to Government Shutdown. You’ll find the VA plan, the guide, and a message from the President to Federal Employees.
If you have resources that you’d like to share, please note them in the comments. As we get new resources, we’ll update this post.
