The Transition Patient Advocate serves as a point of contact to assist transitioning OEF/OIF veterans and their families. TPAs also ensure enrollment and access to full benefits and entitlements; and provide briefings at Demobilizations, Yellow Ribbon Reintegration's, Family Day Events, Post Deployment Health Reassessments, TAP/ACAP briefings, and various Community Events.
Veteran Advocates assist veterans of all eras, connecting them with VA benefits. VAs also conduct Outreach activities throughout the Community, Job Fairs, Faith Based Organizations, Department of Labor Events, Veterans Service Organizations Meetings, and Homeless Stand Downs.
Remember...TPAs are there to help OEF/OIF only...VAs are there to help all other Veterans.
