RallyPoint - the world's largest military social network, TAPS needs volunteers!
Resources for Veterans, their Families, Caregivers, and Survivors
Follow the VA on RallyPoint - the world's largest military network
1.6 million servicemembers, Veterans, family members, government civilians, caregivers, and survivors are engaging on this social network, and VA recently signed a MOU with RallyPoint. There are more than 425K Veteran-centric discussions on the platform. It's a great place to ask (or answer!) questions like "How do I get my Army Medical Records to submit a VA claim?" "When does the VA pay out travel pay?" and "When can I expect my first disability check?"
TAPS seeks 'Good Grief Camp' mentors - can you help?
Honor Memorial Day by volunteering with Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS). As we honor and pay tribute to the service members who have made the ultimate sacrifice, we also hold close the families left behind to carry on their legacy of service. Last year, hundreds of Veterans volunteered to mentor, this year TAPS has 600 children and teens attending the camp over Memorial Day Weekend, and each of them needs their own Military Mentor. Help us keep the battlefield promise of caring for the families of America's fallen military heroes. Make a difference and mentor! Discuss on RallyPoint
