This is a great article on our AmericaServes initiative! We look forward to assisting even more military communities by adding more locations to this program in the future.

"The IVMF hopes that veterans and military members will be encouraged by the knowledge that AmericaServes is out there—that their frustrations about the challenges of navigating a complex transition have been heard and understood."

Our research student interns are back at the IVMF ready to take on the new semester. They attended an orientation at the IVMF to learn about our history, programs, and services. Our research department continues to thrive because of our student interns, and we are so glad to have them back! http://ow.ly/i/nhMxi

Daniel MacDonald, Marine Corps Veteran and owner of MacDonald Engineering, is the first veteran to be hired to work on the National Veterans Resource Complex (NVRC). MacDonald is working as a land surveyor on the future site of the NVRC. He states that there has never been a project he has been more proud to work on. Read more: http://bit.ly/2cB4V5t

Our latest research brief is in recognition of September as Suicide Prevention Awareness Month.

In July 2016, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs released a report that found 20 veterans die by suicide each day. Other researchers have demonstrated that mental illness and access to care are contributing factors to suicide among veterans. But there is limited research on the relationship of perceived unmet mental healthcare needs and its association with suicidal ideation (also known as suicidal thoughts, or an unusual preoccupation with suicide), among veterans. Addressing this gap in the literature, this study evaluated the association between perceived unmet mental healthcare need and suicidal ideation among U.S. veterans.

"Since our Nation's founding, in peace and in war, the values that define our brave men and women in uniform have remained constant: honor, courage, and selflessness. From the deafening sounds of combat to the silence of the sacred hills at Arlington, we remember the countless sacrifices our service members make to preserve the freedoms we too often take for granted. No one understands the true price of these freedoms like our Gold Star families, whose humility, even in times of grief, represents the best of our country. Today, we recognize their sacrifices by listening to their stories, sharing in their pain and pride, and pledging to do all we can to honor them and the loved ones they hold close in their hearts."

Take time to recognize our Gold Star families, and remember their selfless sacrifices. We will never forget the fallen and their families. Thank you all for your courageous service.

Did you miss the Syracuse University - Veterans Career Transition Program (VCTP) application window for the January 2017 cohort? The application opened at 8:30 a.m. EST and closed around 12:30 p.m. EST – it took only 4 hours to fill up! But don't worry, those who are eligible for the program and missed the recent application window can apply to the next cohort.

In their first blog post, IVMF's Laura Cooper, Maithreyee Dubé, and Jim Schock encourage eligible transitioning service members, veterans and spouses to learn more about the other IVMF resources while waiting for the next VCTP cohort to begin.
