Clothing

The Clothes Make the Man

Unfortunately, in this superficial world of ours, it is all so true. We have to “look the part to play the part.”

You can’t feel your best and most confident without looking the part. Fortunately, there are many federal, state, local government and community resources for clothing. Take a look at the resources listed below. Together, they can help you find the clothing you need for interviews or work. Often it is at no cost to you. Whether for the office or the job-site, we’ve got you covered.

Not only that, our network can help you get job training, interview training and placement opportunities with companies that like hiring Vets. The even better news is that you don’t have to wait to get help.

  • Probably your best resources is to check in with your local Veterans Service Officer. They have the pulse of the community and can help you get what you need.
  • Type “clothing” in the search box at FindHelp.org to find free or low cost clothing sources in your area.
  • Good clothing can also be found by using the Salvation Army site.
  • Another great source is Goodwill where you can find your local shop.
  • If you are near one of the VA’s hospitals, they often have “Clothing Rooms” of donated clothing from the community, right down to new underwear. Check with their Volunteer Services office. While you a re checking that VA site, also look for Vet Centers. They can guide you to local sources that we don’t know about.

Please also check out our page on Filing Claims. We recommend that you do NOT file claims on your own.  If you do not file exactly the way the VA looks for information, it can take literally years for your claim to go back and forth before approval or denial.

The other resources listed, such as your local Veterans Service Office  (names vary by county), VSO counselor, VFW, etc., will help you determine what you are eligible for and file correctly for results in as little as a few weeks.
