I finally made some headway on my Veterans Resource website project. Thankfully, the Department of Veterans Affairs finally got on board with the Open Government Initiative. All the data I was using, and continue using, comes from the VA featured open data. It isn’t going to win any design contests, but I was more focused on functionality over fashion. I can make it look pretty later.
This covers much of the benefits, programs, and support that the VA offers to veterans. I’m hoping this site may help people so they don’t have to stumble through the dark like I did when I got out of the military.Tags: benefits, military, Open Data, VA, veteran
