Understanding and applying for veterans services can be challenging and hard to come by, especially in rural communities and during a pandemic.
Tigers for Troops, a partnership of University of Missouri Extension and the MU School of Law Veterans Clinic, is connecting veterans to vital resources through one-on-one consultations by videoconference. The organization recently helped more than a dozen veterans at the Salem Community Center through one-on-one Zoom sessions. “Zoom has been a blessing in allowing us to continue to do outreach even when we can’t be there in person,” said Sara O’Connor, support specialist for the Veterans Law Clinic. “Getting compensated for [VA disability claims] can be a years-long process, and without assistance, even the most intelligent, capable veterans can need help navigating the system.”
