More than 400 people attend 17th Annual Veterans Summit 
 
More than 400 people attended the 17th Annual Veterans Summit in Austin on February 4, which provided attendees with the opportunity to discuss Veterans issues in an open forum environment.
 
Veterans, Texas Veterans Commission partners, Veterans Service Organizations, legislators and community leaders from across Texas came to the summit where Sen. Donna Campbell provided opening remarks to kick off the summit.
 
This year's theme was "Strengthening the Foundation: Building a better future for Veterans" and highlighted how government organizations work together with Veteran service organizations and community partners to solve Veterans issues together.
 
Beginning with the State Legislative Panel, state Sen. Brian Birdwell and Reps. Joe Farias and Rick Miller spoke on the 84th Legislative Session and Veteran-related priorities. One priority discussed was the Hazlewood Act, which was discussed more in-depth during the Education Panel.
 
The discussion during the Education Panel focused on the Hazlewood Legacy Act, which allows the dependents of eligible Veterans to utilize the education benefit.
 
Following the Hazlewood and State Legislative Panel, attendees divided into nine breakout panels on the topics of mental health, employment, VA partnership, criminal justice, entrepreneurship, women Veterans, homelessness, community collaboration and Veterans engagement.
 
Despite the packed rooms, attendees engaged in many thoughful, positive discussions to better assist the 1.7 million Veterans who call Texas home.
 
The Texas Veterans Commission wishes to thank the many partner organizations, panel members and participants who made this year's summit one of the best ever and look forward to seeing everyone again next year!

Military Veteran Peer Network offers peer networking services
 
Coming off the recent release of the films "American Sniper" and the Oscar-nominated documentary "Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1," a national conversation has highlighted the issue of Veterans mental health.  Each of these films focuses on a different aspect of Veterans mental health and can help start a conversation that the Miliitary Veteran Peer Network (MVPN) can continue.
 
MVPN offers Veterans the opportunity to engage with peers to discuss their stories in a safe environment.
 
MVPN is continually expanding their network of peer coordinators and trained 600 Veterans and their family members in 2014. Their continued desire to help led to more than 52,000 peer interactions last year as well. 
 
If you know anyone who would benefit from peer networking and counseling, or would like to get involved yourself, please visit MVPN's website, http://www.milvetpeer.net/.
 
If you are a Veteran in immediate crisis, or know someone who is, please call the Veterans Crisis Line at 1-800-273-8255 (Press 1).

Care and benefits for Veterans strengthened by $169 billion VA budget
 
The President has proposed a $168.8 billion budget for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in fiscal year 2016. The proposed budget will support VA goals to expand access to timely, high quality health care and benefits, continue the transformation of VA into a Veteran-centric department and end homelessness among Veterans. 
 
“VA has before it one of the greatest opportunities in its history to enhance care for Veterans and build a more efficient and effective system.  This budget will allow us to continue important progress to better serve Veterans, their families and their survivors,” said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert A. McDonald. “We are listening to what Veterans, Congress, employees, Veterans Service Organizations (VSOs), and other stakeholders are telling us.  We aspire to make VA a model agency that is held up as an example for other government agencies to follow with respect to customer experience, efficient and effective operations, and taxpayer stewardship.”

Online prescription tracker gives Veterans 24/7 online access to status
 
Veterans can now track the status of most of their prescriptions online, thanks to an innovative idea by a Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) employee. The new 24/7 service allows online tracking for most prescriptions mailed from the VA Mail Order Pharmacy.
 
The Prescription Tracker was recommended by VA employee Kenneth Siehr, a winner of the President’s 2013 Securing Americans Value and Efficiency (SAVE) Award. Siehr’s idea focused on the use of technology as a way to save money and improve the services VA provides to its patients.
