Preparing For Deployment
In addition to looking at the “VA on Deployment” page to see what the VA can do to help you, there are more federal, state, local government and community resources, available. You can find many local resources, anywhere in the country for help with any of the 80+ on our home page, covering you and your family. When you enter your zip code you’ll find local services – many of them are either free or low cost.
And don’t forget the outstanding support, for you and your family from Military One Source. You are in a tradition of hundreds of years of deployments. Don’t hesitate to take advantage of all that knowledge.
