The Pentagon’s online and call center resource, Military OneSource, has added new services to provide tools to service members, military spouses, and other dependents during the coronavirus pandemic, DOD memo recently outlined.
New services include an online directory of up-to-date information about COVID-19 geared toward military families, virtual non-medical counseling for children, and providing live Facebook videos to overview highlight program resources.
“Our families can feel confident about finding official information and guidance on our websites and social media platforms. While we have made necessary changes in response to this pandemic, one thing remains the same – our commitment to serving our military community,” said Kim Joiner, deputy assistant secretary of defense for military community and family policy.
Military OneSource is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
