veteran care in Arkansas

While the nation recovers from the devastating scandal involving the Department of Veteran Affairs, veteran care in Arkansas has remained a reliable resource for our heroes in need.

The Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) has often been regarded as the reason the US military system works so efficiently; when our soldiers return from combat, they have resources available to them to help them deal with the physical and psychological trauma they have suffered while serving. With the VA system recently coming under fire across the nation, Arkansas veterans can find answers to rising questions about veteran care in Arkansas through assistance from ARVets.

ARVets Case Manager Teiraney Ousley oversees AVETP services.

For Two years, ARVets has worked with various organizations to implement the Arkansas Veterans Education & Training Partnership (AVETP).

Specifically, the comprehensive program helps Veterans train for high demand jobs.

Eligible Veterans receive tuition assistance at one of 22 participating two-year colleges or apprenticeship programs and partners at the Department of Workforce Services help those Veterans prepare for and find the right jobs.

On June 30, 2015, AVETP is expected to end. However, organizations or individuals interested in extending the life of this program should contact ARVets CEO Nicole Hart to make a generous donation.

In the meantime, as the program enters its final year, ARVets Case Manager Teiraney Ousley will ramp-up efforts to get Veterans the support and training they need to succeed in new careers.

As as combat Veteran of the Iraq war, it is disheartening to hear that the efforts that myself and fellow battle buddies fought for (and some died for) remain unsettled.

However, I know without question that our service members will continue to answer the call of the U.S. government in aiding our country’s interests here and abroad.

For ARVets and others here at home who are actively supporting our nation’s heroes we can only ask that the same honor and loyalty be extended to those service members and their families beyond the orders given by their nation.
