The Nebraska Veteran’s Administration is hoping to reach more members by using social networking sites. Spokesman Will Ackerman says they are working with all veterans to create Twitter accounts. Ackerman says by using Twitter, veterans can receive up to the minute information about all services that are available to them. He says this will be extremely helpful for those who live in rural areas.
Ackerman says they are giving more attention to the needs of female veterans. He says they will post messages about clinical services that are available for female veterans. He adds many of today’s combat warriors are women and the V-A is adjusting to their needs.
The V-A is working with veterans and their families to create the Twitter accounts.
