9/1/21 | Due to various circumstances related to the current Covid epidemic, unfortunately we are having to cancel Stand Down 2021.   

This comes as a blow to all involved, but without the services offered by VA, and other providers that are unable to participate, we are not be able to make available the most essential services that make a Stand Down.

 

To the Veterans who are in need of services at this time, we encourage you to come by the Stand Down office at 604 D St., Marysville, or contact your local Veterans Service Officer.  We will do our best to support your needs or refer you to the appropriate agency.

 

To the Service Providers and Volunteers who were willing to come out and make Stand Down a success, we thank you and hope that you will continue to support the Stand Down and join us for the 2022 event.

 

Please share this information with your colleagues, friends and family members.

 

For more information, please call the Stand Down office at (530) 749-1036, or send an email to ysveteranssd@gmail.com.

EDUCATION

Financial Assistance for Veterans

Financial concerns are a fact of life for many American veterans. Regular moves and redeployments can be an expensive business, and with the job market still recovering from the recession, it may take a little time to find a new position upon discharge. Thankfully, help it as at hand from a number of organizations.

Debt Relief for Veterans

A veteran returning from service may also be faced with debt concerns. Studies show that former military personnel are more likely to struggle with credit card debt than the average civilian, and the build-up of such concerns can be every bit as worrying as immediate or impending financial hardship.

  • Military.com offers advice on how to chip away at credit card debt.

  • Debt.org is an organization that assists consumers with debt concerns, and have policies in place for veterans.

  • InCharge are a charity that provides help and assistance to Americans struggling with debt and again focuses on military personnel.

  • The American Legion can offer advice and support.
     

Housing for Veterans

Housing is also a concern for military personnel. Military housing can be removed from an equation if somebody leaves the armed forces, and the statistics that detail homeless veterans do not make for pretty reading. As always, never be shy about looking into your options, of which there are many.

Employment and Education for Veterans

A return to civilian life can be daunting for any veteran, even once the primary concerns of housing and finance are resolved. What will you do for work, and what options are available to you for re-training?

Benefit Entitlement for Veterans

Services and Compensation for Injured Veterans

Any of the brave men and women you sacrifice their physical well-being for their country are entitled to various benefits upon their discharge.

Mental Health Concerns for Veterans

It isn’t just physical injury that can afflict military personnel; many veterans understandably experience struggles with their mental health following the high-pressure nature of life in the armed forces and the culture shock of transitioning to civilian life.

Summary of Useful Links

As a nation, we owe a huge debt of thanks to brave the men and women of our armed forces who have fought and sacrificed to protect our freedom. This debt can be repaid by making their transition into civilian life as comfortable and tranquil as possible, and by following the steps detailed in this guide, there is no reason why this should not be the case. Help is always at hand to those who need it, provided they know where to turn; below is a list of all the links that have been discussed in this article.
