City Working to Make it Easier for Vets to Get Help

The City of San Antonio’s Military Affairs Office hopes to make it easier for veterans to get services.

“We’re trying to consolidate to have a veterans support organization under one roof,” Director Juan Ayala told KTSA News.

He thinks bringing all or most of the area’s veterans support groups together would make it easier for those agencies to help veterans when it comes to employment, education, transition, health, veterans affairs, and family support.

He’d like this to be a one-stop-shop for the nearly quarter of a million veterans in Military City.

“It would keep them from making a phone call somewhere and then being redirected to somewhere else and then redirected to somewhere else,” Ayala said. “At the end of the day, we want all veterans to be very confident that they make one phone call to one place” to get the help or support they need.
