Veterans Day is a time to show our appreciation for those who served to keep our freedoms secure. For many, the struggle does not end after they come home after serving and transitions are difficult.
For veterans who need assistance transitioning into the civilian workforce, Brainfuse VetNow is a database available on https://finditva.com with a library card from any library in Virginia. VetNow supports community veterans and their families by providing VA benefits assistance, academic tutoring and employment transition assistance. Veterans and their families can get answers regarding benefits eligibility, referral to community resources for housing, healthcare and educational needs. Veterans can receive real-time tutoring via instructors in online classrooms.
