Legislators urge completion of West Virginia military survey

CHARLESTON — Members of the West Virginia Legislature are reminding veterans and current military members from all eras, ages, and services to complete the 2012 West Virginia Military Survey.

The survey is the state’s main source of comprehensive information regarding work, education, family, retirement, health, and access to benefits for service members. Survey results help to improve services and resources for military heroes and their families and can lead to veteran-friendly changes in state legislation.     

More than 8,000 postcard invitations to participate in this survey were mailed in late September. Respondents may complete the survey online  at or by calling 1-855-299-6605.

Legislators sponsoring the survey include Delegate Barbara Evans Fleischauer, D-Monongalia, co-chair of the Veterans Interim Committee; Delegate Richard Iaquinta, D-Harrison, chair of the House Committee on Veterans Affairs and an Army veteran; and Senator Erik Wells, D-Kanawha, chair of the Senate Military Committee and a Lieutenant Commander of the U.S. Navy Reserve.    

Responses are confidential and the information will not be published or released in any form that would reveal an individual participant.

Survey participants will be entered into a drawing for a VISA cash gift card (one $500 gift card, five $100 gift cards, and thirty $50 gift cards will be given away; military/veteran status of all gift card winners must be verified before prizes are awarded).

The survey is available online at Interested participants can also call 1-855-299-6605 toll-free to schedule a telephone interview.
