VA Mobile Apps for PTSD

VA mobile applications (apps) provide self-help, education and support. They also have treatment companion apps, for use with a health care provider, to make treatment easier. There are apps for iOS and Android devices.

PTSD is a serious mental health condition that often needs professional evaluation and treatment. These apps are not intended to replace needed professional care.

Cellular discounts

In the last Retired Military Newsletter, they mentioned discounts veterans are due for cell phone service. They explained it was a requirement included in the Federal Telecommunications Act 1996 Discount to Federal Employees Past and Present. They listed the companies and phone numbers:

Cingular (19% discount) 800-319-6393
T-Mobile (22% discount) 866-646-4688
Sprint (15% discount) 888-788-4727
Nextel (18% discount) 800-639-6111
Verizon (23% discount) 800-922-0204

The simplest way was to go to the local office and show them your ID (or DD Form 214). It is quick & easy.
