Thank you all for joining us for this virtual event. Given social distancing, I think many family members are more rapidly becoming caregivers for children, sick loved ones and aging family members. How does your organization help the military community 1) realize when they are actually becoming a caregiver in the less obvious cases (not catastrophic injuries, cancer, etc.) and 2) understand what COVID-triggered and permanent resources are available to help us make that transition?

Lisa Pape - Hi Lisa if your response was to my disabled veteran mom's post. Ummm, for me both my husband and I are disabled veterans. We are each others supports and do what we can to care for each other. I have found resources for caregivers are great toward disabilities others can see like being wheelchair bound for example. Those that are chronic and mental health in nature leave some of us fending for ourselves and continually struggling with accepting our own limitation since serving our country. As you all continue your efforts please consider the vast demographic of your disabled veteran community. Also that children of veterans without physically visible disabilities are impacted every day too. Resources to support veteran families of this nature would be greatly appreciated.
