New phone app available connects veterans to help, resources

Veteran App

TYLER (KYTX) - There's now a new, and free phone app just for veterans. About a month ago, the Department of State Health Services released the --Texas Veteran-- app.

The app can be downloaded on any phone with app capabilities. At the tap of a screen or button, veterans can get in touch with crisis centers, with other veterans, and get help finding veteran resources.

"This app will help them stay where they're at get in  ouch with someone and maybe change their lives or help them out  of a crisis. I mean it's a fantastic app," said veteran advocate with the Green Zone Michael Beck.

Advocates said, this app has been nearly five years in the making. They say the app will come in handy for veterans and their families.
