In today's day and age, the entire world is connected. We have access to traditional websites, phone apps, social media, and more. Let's take a look at how these are being effectively used to reach veterans and provide service for veterans.
These are the major issues. The general trend is that the average veteran is substantially more tech savvy than the providers of veterans' services. This needs to change. There are so many possibilities out there to reach veterans that wouldn't be reachable otherwise. Maybe it's time to think a little more creatively and crowdsource change. Maybe a VA sponsored hackathon is in order to get folks together, I don't know. I just know we need to get on top of this now, before we allow any more vets to fall through the cracks that don't have to.
As I continue my life with PTSD, I will share my challenges and discoveries on this blog.
