Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

Today the state of Montana launches a new web site that will have everything a military veteran will need. For the first time in Montana, veterans will have the world at their fingertips with the launch of a new site dedicated to veterans needs.

"We're here today to launch the Network of Care, it's an online one stop resource guide for veteran service members and their family," says Bureau Chief, Deb Matteucci.

Since being elected to office Lieutenant Governor John Walsh and Governor Steve Bullock have been working on ways to better the quality of life for our service men and women.

"Well when Governor Bullock and I came into office, one of his priorities was for him to continue to take care of Montana's veterans, make sure that the resources they need are available and they knew about the resources and they could obtain the resources. So Governor Bullock has been a great supporter of our veterans in the state of Montana and will continue to be a strong supporter of out veterans," says Walsh.

With their support the Network of Care web site is available complete with data and information tailored to the state of Montana.

"You know this is, it's going to be available to veterans and their families from all over the state of Montana. It will be a one stop shop so that service members and their families have a problem and they need assistance they can go to this one location. this is a very great asset for the state of Montana," explains Walsh.

Montana now joins 12 other states in deploying the Network of Care, a web site that site creators say can in time become useful to all Montanan's.

"Absolutely it is a public site that provides information that would be useful to members or to residents across Montana whether they are a service member or not," says Matteucci.
