VETS can enroll free!
VETS services and benefits are available to veterans who enroll in the National VETS Archives. All persons who have honorably served in the U. S. Armed Forces are eligible for enrollment. This includes active duty, Reserve and National Guard service as well as other uniformed services such as the Merchant Marine. Family members may enroll deceased veterans or those unable to complete Archives registration due to a disability.
There are no membership or enrollment fees for eligible veterans. VETS reviews all enrollments for eligible Archives registration. All approved submissions are emailed a printable VETS ID card and information about VETS benefits, services and instructions about how to participate in the activities of the Veterans Commerce Foundation, the VETS charity that supports veterans in entrepreneurship and business.
The “We Honor VETS” program
A consumer benefit of VETS is the “We Honor VETS” program. Local businesses, professionals and approved individuals sponsor the “We Honor VETS” program. They offer recognition. special rewards and savings for veterans who have enrolled in VETS. The sponsors are easily identified by VETS door decals. In VETS-authorized local communities, VETS media partners provide marketing and promotional message opportunities to local “We Honor VETS” sponsors. Sponsors who wish to participate are encouraged to VETS via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Business Resources for Veterans
The primary mission of VETS is to support veterans and the charitable activities of the Veterans Commerce Foundation (VCF). The Foundation mission is to provide veterans with information about starting and operating a commercial business enterprise. This includes offering entrepreneurial education, mentoring and financial assistance to start or grow an existing business.
How VETS Continues to Serve!
Veterans learn valuable skills while serving honorably in the Armed Forces. They also learn about key personal behaviors including leadership, duty, teamwork and how to deal with challenges and solve problems. Veterans are professionally trained to complete their assigned tasks. These abilities and attitudes don’t end when veterans return to civilian life in their communities.
At VETS, we offer an opportunity for veterans to continue their dedication to community service by creating a VETS Volunteer Program in each community. Local media assist in this process by publicizing the availability of individuals and work groups to tackle tasks that qualify for volunteer assistance.
Veterans who enroll in VETS are given the opportunity to volunteer and choose the skills and tasks they are willing to offer to others. Merchants and other sponsors are welcome to participate by donating materials and other assistance at the national or community level.
Other VETS Services and Benefits
Once a veteran has enrolled with VETS, a whole new world of opportunity is available to help with personal and business goals. VETS provides current information about reunions, meetings and special events. VETS also provides information about benefits available from the Veterans Administration and other agencies and organizations that support veterans.
