Veterans Community Integration Resources Military Life Cycle Module
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is announcing to the public its intent to develop a ``Community Integration Resources'' (CIR) Military Life Cycle (MLC) module. MLC modules are learning opportunities that are available at designated touchpoints throughout servicemembers' careers and that help servicemembers plan for transition well before separation. This CIR module will help make servicemembers and veterans aware of the community resources and services available; it will also help them learn to use Federal tools like the National Resource Directory to identify and vet those resources and services and decide how and when to engage them for assistance. Organizations interested in supporting servicemembers and veterans as they integrate into their communities are encouraged to register with the National Resource Directory (NRD) by visiting http:// nrd.gov and selecting ``Submit a Resource.'' Registration in NRD ensures that your organization is included in the MLC module's resources and makes your organization visible and accessible to servicemembers and veterans across the Nation.
