Theft Identity Theft Warning Theft

As you may be aware of already, older Vets and retirees are becoming increasingly

popular targets for identity thieves. The headaches, stress, and monetary losses that

come with being a victim can be life altering for families. One way identity theft can

be prevented is by enrolling in an identity theft protection service that will

prevent identity theft from ever occurring. Not only do identity theft services notify

you of suspicious activity, they also go as far as to monitor every bit of sensitive

information including bank info, credit card info, social security numbers, and even

addresses and names. Because of this and because the options for choosing an identity

theft protection service can get complicated, my team and I have worked hard to

develop a completely free resource that will help guide vets, retirees, and their

families in choosing an identity theft protection service that best suits their needs.

Our guide is filled with in-depth reviews, detailed comparisons, and expert ratings.

Mental Issues and Substance Abuse.

Many veterans struggle with stress and mental illness, which

increases their risk for developing substance use disorders.

Our goal is to spread awareness of substance abuse and to be an

informational resource for those impacted by alcohol and drug dependence.

Recently, we added a page that has specific information about veterans

and I believe that it would be a great resource to share.
