A significant portion of Military families have debt (92.5% according to a Military Family Advisory Network survey). Here are the resources provided by the article below (copy and paste the link for more information):
  • “Financial resources on base: Every military installation has a personal finance management program, on-installation counselors, and on-base advisers that can help answer financial questions.
  • Financial resources off-base
    • NFCC and Military OneSource: The nonprofit NFCC partners with Military OneSource, which offers strategies to help service members consolidate and pay down debt, as well as save for retirement or college and create financial plans. The NFCC, which is the longest-serving and largest national nonprofit financial counseling organization in the U.S., also has a branch specifically to help with military families' debt relief.
    • Financial Institution Regulatory Authority: The Financial Institution Regulatory Authority (FINRA) offers a fellowship program for military spouses to earn an Accredited Financial Counselor certificate and to develop financial skills. The program is in partnership with the National Military Family Association, and there is no cost to participants.
    • ClearPoint Reconnect: The program provides online and phone counseling in English and Spanish, online financial education (courses include Managing Financial Stress and Reshaping Credit) and identifies local resources to help veterans reach their short-term financial goals and create economic stability. The counselors are knowledgeable about opportunities through HUD, FDIC and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. ClearPoint has partnerships with organizations such as New Directions for Veterans and Operation Homefront. ClearPoint, an Atlanta-based division of Money Management International, says there is no cost for military service people to participate.
    • Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's Office of Service member Affairs: The CFPB, a government agency that makes sure banks, lenders and other financial companies treat consumers fairly, recognizes the unique financial challenges military families face. CFPB's Office of Service member Affairs monitors complaints, and offers tools and resources to assist military homeowners, make student loans more affordable, provide predatory loan protections and recover money for military members who have been targeted by scams and illegal practices.”

“According to the authors, this was the largest study to assess clinically significant nightmares in an active duty population referred for the evaluation of sleep disorders. The study involved 493 active duty U.S. military personnel. Participants had a mean age of 38 years, and 78.5 percent were men. Participants predominantly served in the Army (45.6 percent) and Air Force (45.2 percent); 9.2 percent served in the Navy/Marines. Approximately 74 percent of them had been deployed. Those with trauma-related nightmares were more likely to have traumatic brain injury, PTSD, anxiety and depression.”
While “31% of the military participants had clinically significant nightmares” only 3.9% reported nightmares as a cause for sleep-related issues.
Treatment for nightmares can lead to better sleep quality, quality of life and reduce other disorders such as depression.

“Military Licensing
On January 1, 2014, the Division of Corporations, Business and Professional Licensing and its corresponding boards and commissions will begin examining the credentials of related military experience of those who submit documentation of military training, skills, and experience along with an application for temporary licensure. Upon determination of equivalency, relevant military experience will be credited for licensing requirements and educational credit will be granted for appropriate training. Military personnel who wish to apply using this program may submit Form #08-4633 and accompanying credentials with their license application.
Alaska law also allows licensed members of the military who are deployed to combat zones, danger pay posts, or hazardous duty areas to defer licensing requirements. Military personnel who meet this requirement may use Form #08-4581 to request this exemption.
In addition to offering these programs for service members, spouses of active duty military personnel with Alaska orders may request that their temporary or courtesy licensing applications be expedited by attaching Form #08-4580 to their license application.
Before submitting one of the forms below, please read the authorizing statutes of these programs and for the profession in which you plan to work to ensure familiarity with Alaska law.”

<![CDATA[“CALL THREE” DURING VET CENTER AWARENESS MONTH]]>Fri, 09 Mar 2018 18:04:25 GMThttp://forgetmenotcoalition.org/resources/call-three-during-vet-center-awareness-monthJOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, Alaska — Recognizing the somber significance of the month of March as having a historically high rate of veteran suicides, the Governor’s Alaska Veterans Advisory Council (AVAC) has unanimously adopted a resolution in support of recognizing the month of March each year as Command Sergeant Major (Retired) Robert “Bob” James Nelson Vet Center Awareness Month.

“This month, we’re encouraging every veteran to call three friends,” Alaska Office of Veterans Affairs (OVA) Director Verdie Bowen said, “and asking them to please call three friends each. And if any are having difficulty, encourage them to call a Vet Center.”

Bob Nelson served 23 years as a counselor to veterans at the Anchorage Vet Center and as a counselor to veterans and first responders following the 9/11 terrorist attacks and Hurricane Katrina through his nationally recognized Post-Traumatic Stress response programs. Bob passed away on October 20, 2017, leaving a legacy of honorable and exemplary service.

Congress established the Vet Center Program in 1979 in recognition that significant numbers of Vietnam veterans were experiencing readjustment problems. The goal of each Vet Center is to provide a broad range of counseling, outreach, and referral services to eligible veterans in order to help them make satisfying post-war readjustments to civilian life. Vet Center services are available to all combat veterans and their family members.

“The Vet Center represents a vital resource for veterans when they transition out of the military,” Phillip Hokenson, Chair of the Alaska Veterans Advisory Council said. “The Center stands in the gap to meet the behavioral health needs of active duty service members when they transition while they line up their VA Healthcare and VA Benefits.”

“Readjustment can often be difficult and sometimes lead to other serious issues like depression, substance abuse, and suicide,” Bowen said. “That’s why it is imperative that we all take a moment every day to reach out to our brothers and our sisters – those we served with – and encourage them to utilize the services available at the Vet Centers. These are free, but invaluable, services that save lives.”

Vet Centers are located at:
In Anchorage: 4400 Business Park Blvd, (907) 563-6966
In Fairbanks: 540 4th Ave., #100, (907) 456-4238
In Wasilla: 851 E. Westpoint Dr., #102, (907) 376-4318
In Kenai/Soldotna: 43299 Kalifornsky Beach Rd., (907) 260-7640

The interactive map shows data over a five-year period (2012-2017) and does not include Veterans’ personal information. The posted information shows opioid-dispensing rates for each facility and how much those rates have decreased over time. It is important to note that because the needs and conditions of Veterans may be different at each facility, the rates of the use of opioids may also be different for that reason, and cannot be compared directly.
The prescribing rate information will be updated semi-annually, on January 15 and July 15 of each year.”

Family readiness refers to the state of being prepared to effectively navigate the challenges of daily living experienced in the unique context of military service. The study surveyed families at frequent intervals throughout a complete deployment cycle — before a service member deploys (sometimes months before), during the actual deployment, and after the service member returns (possibly a year or more after she or he redeployed). It assessed a number of outcomes over time, including:
  • the quality of marital and parental relationships
  • the psychological, behavioral, and physical health of family members
  • child and teen well-being (e.g., emotional, behavioral, social, and academic)
  • military integration (e.g., attitudes toward military service, retention intentions).
This culminating report briefly reviews the study design and data collection procedures, presents results from analyses of the longitudinal data collected from some 2,700 military families, and offers recommendations for programs and future research related to military families. The research was jointly sponsored by the Office of the Surgeon General, U.S. Army, and by the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury.”
