Veterans Assistance

Willard Jackson became KIC’s Tribal Veteran Representative in 2008 through the Department of Veterans Affairs.

One of the most important functions as Veterans Committee Chair has been to try to get Veterans enrolled. If you are a Veteran and have not been enrolled please contact me at 907-617-1485. Some of the opportunities that are available to Veterans and their families are:

1. Domiciliary (rehabilitation)

2. Housing for Homeless Vets

3. Registration Assistance

4. Compensation Pension

5. Burial Assistance

6. Assisting spouses with death benefits

7. GI Bill scholarship program application assistance

 

If you know of anyone that needs assistance with forms, enrollment or getting registered please don’t hesitate to contact me. Guna’l Cheesh
