Report Helps Returning Veterans Find Services

State provided services and resources can be hard to find with so many laws and initiatives being passed and discussed across the state and federal government.

In a recent report from the Wisconsin Legislative Bureau, the many services and programs available to veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan were compiled to help veterans find the services. The report lists nearly 40 state and federal programs to assist veterans in education, mental health, physical disabilities, transportation, and tax credits.
