First of all I would like to thank you for your service to your country and your interest in the Columbus State Veterans Organization (CSVO). We would like to hold a general information meeting on Thursday 15 Jan 2015 1400hrs
The meeting will take place in Delaware Hall Room 156 (The Veterans Lounge) and if
need be we can move to a bigger class room.
The CSVO is a recognized student organization by Columbus State and a National Chapter of Student Veterans of America (SVA). As your chapter advisor I plan to work with you on addressing veterans issues, concerns and assist with raising awareness within the local community.
We will also be discussing how the CSVO will be involved in 2015 Veterans Events, here at Columbus State.
The heart of SVA is the student veteran led chapter. These local organizations are the "boots on the ground" that provide peer-to-peer support, which has been linked to academic success and an easier transition to campus for student veterans. Through this national network of affiliates, SVA impacts the lives of thousands of student veterans.

VA Develops Mobile Application "Concussion Coach" To Help Support Treatment for Veterans Who Suffer From Mild to Moderate Concussions - To better meet the needs of Veterans and others who have suffered mild to moderate concussion associated with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has developed "Concussion Coach," a mobile application ("app") that provides portable tools to recognize symptoms and to identify and make use of coping strategies.

Burn Pit Registry...
The VA is collecting info on service members who believe they experienced harmful environmental effects to their health from exposure to burn pits in Iraq or Afghanistan.
Currently, the VA says that research does not show evidence of long-term health problems from expo-sure to burn pits, in which a variety of waste from human to chemicals, petroleum and discarded food were burned. But it is also studying the issue and plans to continue doing so. To that end, the agency is seeking information from veterans who believe such exposure has compromised their health.
Veterans can also file a claim for disability compensation for health problems they believe were caused by exposure to burn pits. The claims will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
According to the VA, veterans who were closer to burn pit smoke or exposed for longer
periods may be at greater risk. Health effects depend on a number of other factors,
such as the kind of waste being burned and wind direction. Toxins in burn pit smoke
may affect the skin, eyes, respiratory and cardio-vascular systems, gastrointestinal
tract and internal organs. Most of the irritation is temporary and resolves once the
exposure is gone. This includes eye irritation and burning, coughing and throat irritation,
breathing difficulties, and skin itching and rashes. The high level of fine dust and
pollution common in Iraq and Afghanistan may pose a greater danger for respiratory
illnesses than exposure to burn pits, the VA said.

FRAUD ALERT: Veterans should be aware of a marketing scam targeting callers trying to reach the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) National Call Center or GI Bill Call Center. A marketing company has established two fraudulent numbers that differ from the two official VA call center numbers by one digit. If the fraudulent number is dialed by mistake, the answering party will offer a gift card and try to obtain personal and financial information, including credit card information, from the caller. The answering party may even transfer the caller to the VA after the caller's information is obtained. Note that VA will never ask you for a credit card number or banking information over the phone. Before giving personal sensitive information over the phone make sure you know who you are taking to.
The numbers to be avoided are:
800-872-1000 (the VA National Call Center number is 800-827-1000)
888-442-4511 (the VA GI Bill Call Center number is 888-442-4551)
VA has notified law enforcement authorities to address this situation, and will provide additional information and guidance as necessary.
