Veterans can follow VA news events "as they happen" as well as be informed of public service announcements targeted to veterans by following the VA on Twitter.
There are numerous ways for GLVFA members (and our website visitors reading this posting) to follow the VA on Twitter.
Twitter Website: easily follow the VA on Twitter through Twitter's website page for Veterans Affairs: Veterans Affairs (@DeptVetAffairs) / Twitter
Smartphone/Tablet: easily follow the VA on any device that has the Twitter application installed (iPhone, Android). It is convenient to install the Twitter app (apple store or google store) and log in using your Twitter account previously set up on your PC or laptop (in fact, you can sign up through the Twitter app on the smartphone just as easily).
For those that might be "technically concerned" with respect to using a social media platform such as Twitter, rest assured, it is not a difficult task to create a Twitter account and "follow" the VA (and any other group of interest you may find interesting or useful). For further information on how to create a new Twitter account, consult Twitter's help page on the process: How to sign up for Twitter and create a new Twitter account
Important "tweets" for the VA (or any other group you might follow) can be sent to your email "inbox" where you can easily click on links in the email that will display such VA tweets (news, info, etc.) directly on your Twitter app (phone) or direct URL on your PC/laptop web browser. An example of such VA tweets on Twitter recently: on 7/5/22, the president presented the Medal of Honor (MOH) to 4 US Army soldiers who served bravely and gallantly in Vietnam. That presentation was posted on Twitter "live".
