The Ohio Department of Veterans Services has upgraded its mobile app for veterans to provide more information on employment and educational resources.
The department launched its free app last November to give veterans an overview of available federal and state benefits and how to apply. The upgraded app provides additional resources to student veterans and vets looking for work. It also offers news of interest to veterans. An "In Crisis" button on the app provides direct access to a toll-free, 24/7 hotline or a website with a live chat feature. It allows veterans or their family members in difficult circumstances to communicate directly with a counselor.
