AARP Wisconsin Increasing Outreach to Veterans and Military Families

Posted on 05/31/23

When you’re a U.S. veteran with more than 40,000 organizations trying to help you, it can be tough to find the right information. AARP’s Veterans and Military Families initiative brings together free, valuable resources and programs to help navigate life’s transitions.​ In 2023, AARP Wisconsin will be increasing outreach efforts around the Veterans and Military Families initiative to bring these resources to more communities throughout the state. Read on for more information on the resources AARP offers, as well as the events we have planned so far. Check back for more information on events throughout the year.
