This week’s round-up of Veterans news and resources:

  • Twenty-two years ago this week, President Bush ordered a cessation of ground combat operations during Desert Storm. Here’s a nice timeline recap of the events before and after that moment.
  • Wondering what benefits you and your dependents may be eligible for? Check out our 2012 Federal Benefits for Veterans handbook, now available online in both English and Spanish. This comprehensive guide provides information on education, home loan, health care, and burial benefits.
  • VA is working to end Veteran homelessness, but we’ve got a ways to go, particularly with female Vets who may be a particularly vulnerable population. Check out how we’re tackling the issue of homeless female Veterans, and if you ever need help getting off the street, off a buddy’s couch, or you’re worried you may be at risk of becoming homeless in the future, call 1-877-4-AID-VET or visit our resource page.
  • Looking to make a career change, or make a jump into something more meaningful? the US Chamber of Commerce is holding Hiring our Heroes job fair events all over the country. See if there’s one coming near you.
  • Want to know more about what ails you? The A-Z Health Topic Index helps you find information on a variety of health concerns.
