Illinois Veterans are being urged to take advantage of the state’s Illinois joining forces program to find the services they need. Illinois Department of Veteran's Affairs Director Erica Borggren says there are so many resources for soldiers returning home and their families…that it’s sometimes overwhelming. She says the Illinois Joining Forces website can help vets sort through it all. Borggren says it’s very easy to use the website. Just visit: illinois joining forces dot org and you can easily search for everything from legal help to job training and mental health care.
