COVID-19 Crisis and Veteran Information
As measures unfold across the country to help prevent further spread of the COVID-19 virus and to protect our vulnerable veteran population, we are providing links to vital information for all veterans. Please be mindful that things are moving very quickly and information may change rapidly.
On March 21st, we held an On-Line Information Meeting discussing COVID-19 and the status of the VA, as well as information on protecting yourself. To check out the presentation, click the image to the right.
