Soldier for Life
Soldier for Life (SFL) is the Army's program to earn that trust by providing resources and opportunities for Soldiers, veterans and families who are in transition.  The SFL program is founded upon the central idea that once a Soldier joins the active or reserve component of the United States Army, he or she is a Soldier for life.  Read the Institute for Land Warfare's Torchbearer publication on SFL.  The  SFL website is also the new home of the Army's Retirement Services Office and includes information for soldiers, veterans, military families/Gold Star families about health services, education, employment and benefits.
From the Nevada Department of Veterans Services
The Nevada Department of Veterans Services is working to ensure that over the next 10-20 years the needs of veterans and their spouses for nursing home care, assisted living care, and adult day care are met across the State of Nevada, urban and rural communities.  In order to do that, we need your input.  We are asking veterans age 50 and over to please fill out this very short survey, which should take about 5 minutes, so that we can hear what matters to you on this critical issue! Thank you in advance for your time. You can click on this link https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Nvseniorhousing.
