Supporting our nation's troops, veterans, and military families is critical to our national security and to strengthening our communities. It is also a top priority for of Corporation for National and Community Service, stemming from the bipartisan Serve America Act. On Thursday, CNCS joined forces with the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) and the National Guard Bureau (NGR) to further reinforce this commitment with the launch of VetCorps.
Today, a group of young men and women, many of them veterans, will stand up and pledge to “get
things done for America”. They will join a legion of more than 750,000 Americans who have served in
AmeriCorps and become the first class to also serve as VetCorps members.
As military deployments became more common for National Guard and Reserve troops, the emotional
strain hits children left behind especially hard. Operation: Military Kids (OMK) supports military youth
age 5-18 with outreach programs to help them cope with the stresses of being away from their parents
serving far from home.
