As a veteran, do you ever wish you could learn more about the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the benefits and services which may be available to you and your family? If so, we hope to help you better navigate VA by reading this new monthly column, Behind Friendly Lines.

My name is Jason T. Strickland (the “T” is for tenacious). I’m a 20-year retired Army veteran, and I’m the chief communications officer at the VA Rocky Mountain Network. For our veteran community, my experience in both realms means I’ve been where you’ve been, I’ve likely deployed where you deployed (on multiple occasions) and I’ve transitioned out of the military just like you. And now I’m able to help you through the words in this column.

Here’s what you can expect on the third Sunday of each month in this valuable Gazette space.
