SF Bay Area Veterans Affairs reaches out to help vets

(Sometimes, the best way to support the troops is to support the people who provide that service. In the Bay area, we have a lot of people really committed to this. Here's something in their own words. /craig)

VA struggles mightily to reach Veterans and their families to ensure they know what benefits they have coming to them - health care, education, home loans, jobs, etc.--but it's not easy.  Its especially challenging in the Bay Area, where most of our newest combat Veterans are National Guard and Reserves.  Its even hard for them to connect to each other sometimes. 

VA Palo Alto Facebook does all that and more.  Access the most up-to-date information on changes to your benefits.  See what events are happening that are either fun or educational or both.  Learn what other organizations in the community can help.  There is so much to know and it doesn't cost a penny to find out. 

Join the VA Palo Alto Health Care System (VAPAHCS) Facebook - or if you would rather, the San Francisco VA Medical Center (SFVAMC) or the VA Northern California Health Care System (VANCHCS) Facebook pages. 

We are all here to serve you.
