National Veteran and Military Families

Excelsior University, The Center for Social Justice, and the Military & Veterans Rope team are excited to celebrate National Veteran & Military Families. Each November, the president signs a proclamation declaring November National Veterans & Military Families Month. We honor and dedicate this month to the service and sacrifice of all veterans and their families.

Military families make great sacrifices as they know what serving means. They support their service member daily and stand by during long training and deployments. Knowing the risks, they accept this life of service as well.

The Defense Department is launching a 2023 National Veterans and Military Families Month landing page on Military OneSource.

It helps the Military Families with a wide range of resources and support for military families and transitioning veterans. The Page features include information about

· Parenting

  Adoption and foster care

· Relationships

· Caring for a family member with special needs

· Resources for Gold Star and surviving family members

· Financial support

· Spouse Employment · Consultations for transitioning veterans
