Veteran Services

  • U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Columbus, Ohio, United States


While the United States military strives for unity and cohesion, each member is inherently unique. In providing services to veterans, it is imperative to keep in focus the various areas of diversity. Specifically, generational differentiation is significant as are combat and noncombat experiences. Veteran service delivery is often complex when symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), military sexual trauma (MST), and other mental health and medical complications such as traumatic brain injury (TBI) are involved. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and non-VA veteran service organizations (VSOs) are often available to help veterans with many aspects of their post-military needs. The most salient are financial support (e.g., compensation and pensions for service connected disabilities), educational and vocational services (e.g., the G.I. Bill), health care, and burial and memorial services.
