|Subject:||Establishing the Veterans’ Peer Outreach and Support Network|
|In the near future, I will be introducing legislation which addresses the problems faced by many veterans when transitioning from military service to civilian life. Despite the information they may receive during out-processing, in regard to the benefits they are eligible for or risks that they are susceptible to, some veterans and their families struggle with maintaining employment, managing their mental and physical condition, and taking the proper steps to provide or seek help when most needed. Through the creation of a veterans’ peer outreach and support network, I strive to improve the health and wellbeing of veterans and their families in our communities across the Commonwealth.
This bill assigns the following duties to the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs:
Please join me in sponsoring this necessary legislation.
