Veterans Have Access to Updated Websites

The Michigan Department of Military and Veterans Affairs launched four new websites this week in an effort to improve access to information for its users.

They split their past website into four new sites to simplify what each site offers and make it easier for people to find the information they need. The Michigan Department of Military and Veterans Affairs, Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency, Michigan Veterans Homes, and Michigan Youth Challenge Academy now all have their own sites.

U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul D. Rogers, adjutant general and director of the Michigan Department of Military and Veterans Affairs, said, “Our websites provide valuable information and services to our service members, employees, stakeholders and the communities we serve. That is why it was imperative that we remove and prevent barriers to accessibility while improving site navigation to key services so that all visitors will have a positive experience when interacting with our websites.”

The sites are more streamlined so users can find information based on key services available from each department and they are more mobile-friendly. They will also help veterans and their dependents connect with a Veteran Service Officer in their area so they can get one-on-one help accessing their benefits.
