National Resource Directory for Veterans

The US Departments of Defense, Labor and Veterans Affairs are pleased to introduce the re-designed and enhanced National Resource Directory (NRD) website,


Created for wounded warriors, transitioning Service Members, Veterans, and their families and caregivers, the new NRD has proved to be a useful tool for service providers who support the military and Veteran communities.


The NRD provides access to thousands of services and resources at the national, state and local levels to support recovery, rehabilitation and community reintegration.


Hiring Our Heroes…

This job fair is for veterans, active duty military members, guard and reserve members, and military spouses at the 69th Regiment Lexington Avenue Armory, 68 Lexington Avenue (between E 25th and 26th Streets), New York, NY

This Capital One-, Verizon-, Toyota-, and University of Phoenix-sponsored hiring event is being conducted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, the New York National Guard, the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, the Department of Labor Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (DOL VETS), the New York Committee of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), the United States Army Reserve (USAR), the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, The American Legion, Goodwill Industries International, the NYS Department of Labor, NYC Department of Small Business Services, NBC News, and other local partners.

The Soldiers Project Long Island Chapter is a proud partner of the Long Island Veterans Initiative at Farmingdate (LIVA@F) and many others working at “Bridging The Gap Between Veterans and Veterans Services.” At the March inaugural meeting of the program called “LI HEATS UP” – Long Island Heroes Empowerment and Transitional Support – United Platform, a new 24/7 automated referral system was introduced. Still in development, it will immediately connect vets to a wide range of support services and referrals via a secure internet based network. Stay tuned for this truly innovative attempt to coordinate the ample yet poorly coordinated services for veterans. In the Long Island region with the most veterans in all of New York State, and in this time of reduced numbers in deployment, it is critical that veterans services be coordinated. LI HEATS UP may be the new model for early and successful integration into civilian life!
