    Texas Tech building new Veteran archive
     
    The Archive of Modern American Warfare (AMAW) at Texas Tech University in Lubbock is currently building its collections to preserve records documenting America’s involvement in military actions after 1975, such as Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, Operations Provide Relief and Restore Hope, the Kosovo War, Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.
     
    It will encompass issues regarding national security, military and government intelligence, homeland defense, the development of new military technologies, diplomacy, and the personal experiences of American servicemen and women.
     
    The Archive accepts traditional archival material (e.g. correspondence, artifacts, analog photographs and videos), and is particularly interested in collecting digital material such as digital photographs, digital videos, emails, text messages, and word processing documents. These materials are of vital importance for the historical information they contain.
     
    If you are interested in donating material to the AMAW please contact them at amaw@ttu.edu or visit their page at www.amaw.ttu.edu.

    VA announces $4 million in funding to help the homeless
     
    Today, Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert A. McDonald announced the award of $4 million in renewal funding offered through the Grant and Per Diem (GPD) Program to 21 community agencies that currently provide enhanced services for homeless Veterans with special needs.
     
    “These important grant renewals will allow community agencies to continue to provide critical transitional housing services where they are needed,” said VA Secretary Robert A. McDonald. “As a key component of the VA’s plan to significantly reduce homelessness among Veterans, the Grant and Per Diem (GPD) Special Need grants will provide funding to community agencies that provide services to homeless Veterans. 
     
    The program promotes the development and provision of supportive housing and services with the goal of helping homeless Veterans achieve residential stability, increase their skill levels and income, and obtain greater self-determination.  Specifically, GPD Special Need grant funding will assist with additional operational costs that would not otherwise be incurred but for the fact that the recipient is providing transitional housing and services for the GPD “Special Need” populations, including women, chronically mentally ill, frail elderly, terminally ill, and individuals who have the care of minor dependents.
