American Corporate PartnersAmerican Corporate Partners (ACP) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting veterans in their transition from the armed services to the civilian workforce. With the help of business professionals nationwide, ACP offers veterans tools for long-term career development through mentoring, career counseling, and networking opportunities. With the belief that one-on-one relationships enhance an atmosphere of mutual understanding, respect, and support, ACP aims to strengthen the connection between corporate America and veteran communities. Programs include: ACP AdvisorNet is an online network of volunteer Advisors who commit to sharing their business expertise and advice with military veterans and their immediate family. Veterans can post questions related to the following areas:
  • Employment,
  • Career Development,
  • Small Business.
ACP’s Veteran Mentoring Program connects Veteran Protégés with Corporate Mentors for a yearlong mentorship. Paired based on their career objectives and professional experience, Mentors and Protégés define the goals of their mentorship together. Mentors have a wide variety of professional expertise, including defense, education, finance, insurance, information technology, logistics, management, manufacturing, marketing and retail. Over the course of the year, all matched pairs should have at least 12 significant discussions regarding the Protégé’s career objectives. These discussions can focus on topics ranging from résumé building and interview skills to networking and small business development. Mentors may participate in all of the discussions personally or arrange for colleagues to meet with their Protégé. ACP has developed two program options in order to offer mentorships to veterans across the country:
  • National - ACP's National Program supports remote mentorships between participants who share similar career interests, but do not live within local proximity. We ask Mentors and Protégés to be flexible regarding the location of their mentorship. Participants in long-distance mentorships communicate by phone, e-mail, and/or videoconference.
  • Local- ACP's Local Programs operate in cities with high densities of participants. Because we aim to connect you with someone whose career objectives and professional experience aligns with yours, we may not always have an ideal candidate in your area. If your location lends itself to a local mentorship, we will do our best to pair you with a participant nearby.

Defense Centers of Excellence, Defense and Veterans Brain Injury CenterThe Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center (DVBIC) is a part of the U.S. military health system. Specifically, it is the traumatic brain injury (TBI) operational component of the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE). Founded in 1992 by Congress, DVBIC’s responsibilities have grown as its network of care and treatment sites has grown. DVBIC's mission is to serve active duty military, their beneficiaries, and veterans with traumatic brain injuries through state-of-the-art clinical care, innovative clinical research initiatives and educational programs, and support for force health protection services. DVBIC fulfills this mission through ongoing collaboration with the DoD, military services, Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), civilian health partners, local communities, families and individuals with TBI. At 18 sites supported by a Washington, D.C-area headquarters, DVBIC treats, supports, trains and monitors service members, veterans, family members and providers who have been, or care for those who are, affected by traumatic brain injuries (TBI). DVBIC works at the macro-level, screening and briefing troops heading into theater, performing pre-deployment provider training and provider training at military treatment facilities, gathering data mandated by Congress and the Department of Defense (DoD), and overseeing research programs. At the micro-level, DVBIC treats service members and veterans with mild, moderate or severe TBI, and helps them from the moment of injury to their return to duty or reintegration into the community. DVBIC develops, provides and distributes educational materials for both military and civilian providers, families, service members and veterans. In 2011 DVBIC disseminated over 960,000 educational materials. The DoD has further solidified DVBIC’s role by naming it the Office of Responsibility for these tasks:
  • Creation and maintenance of a TBI surveillance database,
  • Service compliance for pre-deployment neurocognitive testing,
  • Creation and distribution of the Family Caregiver Curriculum,
  • Design and execution of a 15-year longitudinal study of the effects of TBI in Operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedom service members and their families,
  • Design and completion of independent head to head study to evaluate the reliability and validity of computerized neurocognitive tests.

Military Officers Association of AmericaMOAA is the nation's largest and most influential association of military officers. It is an independent, nonprofit, politically nonpartisan organization. The association plays an active role in military personnel matters and especially proposed legislation affecting the career force, the retired community, and veterans of the uniformed services. MOAA's overarching goals are captured in its resolutions, which reflect the views of the entire membership. The membership provides input and votes on resolutions every two years (on even years). While MOAA is permitted by law to lobby - and does so actively - its status as a tax-exempt veterans organization precludes it from participating in political activities, which are defined as intervening directly or indirectly in any political campaign on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office. Stated briefly, the association may advocate issues, but it may not advocate the election or defeat of particular candidates or political parties.

United States Department of Defense, National Center for Telehealth and Technology - AfterDeploymentIn 2006, Congress mandated the U.S. Department of Defense to develop an online resource addressing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other mental health conditions commonly occurring after a deployment. A recent Institute of Medicine (IOM) study found that 13 to 20 percent of the 2.6 million service members deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan since 2001 may suffer from PTSD. The IOM noted that only slightly more than half of those diagnosed with PTSD actually received treatment. This “treatment gap” was viewed to be the result of three factors: stigma, difficulty accessing care and health care workers not suitably trained to treat PTSD. The need is clear. To meet this need, the Defense Department’s National Center for Telehealth & Technology (T2) developed, and maintains, AfterDeployment (AD). The website was designed to work as a self-care solution. While the general congressional mandate was to focus on the period after deployment, the content, crafted to provide topical comprehensiveness, evolved to more broadly cover the entire deployment spectrum, from pre-deployment through deployment to redeployment. Features were developed to provide an immersive, interactive experience. The material was aimed at a diverse population with the intention of normalizing adjustment problems following a deployment. AD continues to evolve and gain recognition. In 2010 a “Provider Portal” was introduced to add support for health care professionals treating patients with behavioral health issues. The 2013 Interagency Task Force on Military and Veterans Mental Heath Interim Report recognized AD as a premiere DoD web-based psychological health care tool. As AD passes its 5th year anniversary milestone, exciting plans are underway that include expanding content and developing innovative design concepts to enhance user experience.

United States Department of Defense, National Center for Telehealth & TechnologyThe National Center for Telehealth & Technology (T2) is a component center of the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE). Utilizing a range of standard and innovative solutions, T2 recommends, coordinates and manages the development of an integrated DoD telehealth system for the provision of quality, patient-centric psychological and TBI health care services. The geographic dispersion of beneficiaries creates challenges for the Military Health System in providing behavioral health care. Telehealth provides opportunities to not only leverage DoD health provider resources and increase access to care through information and telecommunication technologies, but also to cultivate new, more efficient methods of care delivery. The timely and successful integration of telehealth into the overall DoD health services system requires enterprise-wide strategies, policies, and guidance. T2 is working as a coordinating and resource center focused on the development of a telehealth network of systems across the DoD by leveraging partnerships with the Services, VA, TRICARE, and civilian providers. T2 leads this network to expand the range of services available to rural and underserved locations through the use of various treatment facilities and telehealth technologies. The website contains information on telehealth programs, clinical programs, guides and publications regarding military behavioral health.United States Department of Defense, National Center for Telehealth & TechnologyUnited States Department of Defense

VA helps Servicemembers, Veterans, and eligible surviving spouses become homeowners. As part of our mission to serve you, we provide a home loan guaranty benefit and other housing-related programs to help you buy, build, repair, retain, or adapt a home for your own personal occupancy. VA Home Loans are provided by private lenders, such as banks and mortgage companies. VA guarantees a portion of the loan, enabling the lender to provide you with more favorable terms. Types of Assistance: Purchase Loan VA can help you purchase a home at a competitive interest rate, and if you have found it difficult to find other financing. VA's Cash-Out Refinance Loan For homeowners who want to take cash out of your home equity to take care of concerns like paying off debt, funding school, or making home improvements. The Cash-Out Refinance Loan can also be used to refinance a non-VA loan into a VA loan. VA will guaranty loans up to 100% of the value of your home. VA Home Loan Guaranty Most VA Home Loans are handled entirely by private lenders and VA rarely gets involved in the loan approval process. VA "stands behind" the loan by guaranteeing a portion of it. If something goes wrong and you can't make the payments anymore, the lending institution can come to us to cover any losses they might incur. The VA loan guaranty is the "insurance" that we provide the lender. Interest Rate Reduction Refinance Loan The VA Interest Rate Reduction Refinance Loan (IRRRL) lowers your interest rate by refinancing your existing VA home loan. By obtaining a lower interest rate, your monthly mortgage payment should decrease. You can also refinance an adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) into a fixed rate mortgage. Native American Direct Loan The Native American Direct Loan (NADL) Program provides direct home loans from VA to eligible Native American Veterans to finance the purchase, construction, or improvement of homes on Federal Trust Land, or to refinance a prior NADL to reduce the interest rate. Housing Grants for Disabled Veterans VA provides grants to Servicemembers and Veterans with certain permanent and total service-connected disabilities to help purchase or construct an adapted home, or modify an existing home to accommodate a disability. Two grant programs exist: the Specially Adapted Housing (SAH) grant and the Special Housing Adaptation (SHA) grant.

Its responsibilities include initial veteran registration, eligibility determination, and five key lines of business (benefits and entitlements): Home Loan Guarantee, Insurance, Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment, Education (GI Bill), and Compensation & Pension. As part of our mission to serve Servicemembers, Veterans, and their families, VA provides valuable life insurance benefits to give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing your family is protected.

  • Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance (SGLI) is a low-cost group term life insurance program for Servicemembers. Coverage can be extended for up to two years if the Servicemember is totally disabled at separation.
  • Veterans' Group Life Insurance (VGLI) allows Veterans to convert your SGLI to a civilian program of lifetime renewable term coverage after separation from service.
  • Family Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance (FSGLI) insures spouses and children of Servicemembers with SGLI coverage. Spousal coverage may not exceed the Servicemember's coverage. Dependent children are automatically covered at no charge.
  • Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance Traumatic Injury Protection (TSGLI) is an automatic feature of SGLI that provides payments to Servicemembers who suffer losses, such as amputations, blindness, and paraplegia, due to traumatic injuries that occur in service.
  • Service-Disabled Veterans' Life Insurance (S-DVI) provides life insurance coverage to Veterans who have been given a VA rating for a new service-connected disability in the last two years. Totally disabled Veterans are eligible for free coverage and have the opportunity to purchase additional life insurance.

USA CaresUSA Cares provides financial and advocacy assistance to post 9/11 active duty US military service personnel, veterans and their families. They assist all branches of service and all ranks and components. They do not charge fees nor accept repayment and rely on donations from private citizens, businesses and foundations for all funding. Financial assistance is not given directly to service members or their families; instead, payments are made to mortgage lenders, utility companies, and other vendors. The objective is to reach families at the earliest stage of intervention to proactively prevent further financial distress. Typically, USA Cares provides assistance in four major areas:
  • Emergency Assistance - pays immediate, essential bills, including food and utility bills,
  • Housing Assistance – helps to stop and prevent evictions and foreclosures,
  • Combat Injured - pays basic expenses: mortgage/rent, food and home utilities which enables combat injured to receive treatment and be assured their family is taken care of,
  • Jobs Assistance – reduce unemployment among post-9/11 Veterans through job-seeker tools, open to all veterans, limited financial assistance.

Veterans of Foreign Wars - Operation UplinkAs the largest organization of combat veterans, the VFW knows the importance of keeping military families in touch. That's why in 1996 the VFW launched its Operation Uplink program - a calling program for deployed service members that provides free phone time to active-duty military personnel and hospitalized veterans. Operation Uplink initially provided calling cards to deployed and hospitalized troops, but on Mother's Day in 2006, due to the growing popularity of the program, and thanks to the generosity of corporate donors like Sport Clips Haircuts and Harleysville Insurance, the program began hosting "Free Call Days." The program is the only one of its kind, providing at least three designated days each month when deployed service members can make FREE phone calls home to the U.S. from their Morale, Welfare & Recreation (MWR) center or military DSN line. Free Call Days have provided more than 7.5 million free connections for service members and their families. Veterans of Foreign WarsVeterans of Foreign Wars Foundation
