Veteran services are critical during the COVID-19 crisis
our country is currently serving, and those who choose to serve shoulder the burden of responding to significant threats to our communities and the entire country. Some people decide to enter the service on active duty, while others choose the Reserves or National Guard. All are important to our collective health and safety — especially during a crisis.
As of April 3, 11 states have mobilized nearly 20,000 Guard troops in response to COVID-19, and coronavirus-related deaths nationwide are in the thousands. We depend on the resiliency and strength of those that serve, but we do not always catch veterans and service members when the systems designed to support them fall short.
