This guide offers instruction on how veterans can apply for VA benefits; where to look to find affordable housing; how to find employment training programs and job placement assistance; where to obtain medical and mental health services; and who is available to provide counseling and other assistance programs in their communities. The authors suggest that each veteran should have his or her own copy of the workbook in which notes can be recorded on the progress being made, community contacts who have helped, and agreements that are reached with service providers. The guide also serves as a guidance tool for corrections, social services and federal agency personnel who are trying to help incarcerated veterans. A wealth of contact information is provided, as well as tips on letter writing, filling out forms, and a timeline for when certain actions should be taken prior to the veteran's release. (Authors)
