TAVA has helped me with getting help on how to sign up at the VA to start receiving help with my transition.
TAVA is an excellent one-stop resource for any transgender veteran. When I first came out as a transgender man, I remember feeling lost and confused. Then, I found TAVA and realized I was not alone! Right before my eyes I found a wealth of information and support. That was five years ago and I haven't looked back. If not for TAVA, I would have remained scared and fearful of getting the care I needed at my local VA.
I ran across TAVA while I was searching for information on Veterans dealing with Transgender treatment and counseling. I sent a message and received a reply almost immediately. It was great. I was able to speak my mind about my situation and I was sent a few links within minutes. Emails are great but they reach back to me via phone as well which is awesome to have a real voice giving support on the other side of the phone. When I ran into an issue with the local VA, I reached out again and with in 24 hours I was information back from the VA with a fix to my issue.
I am very thankful to TAVA and Gene for their help and support.
I am thrilled to share that I was able to obtain a corrected DD 214 by following the instructions found on the TAVA website.
I reached out to TAVA to get guidance on changing my DD 214. Almost immediately, Evan replied back to me and gave me the information I needed. TAVA is literally a life saver. Now, my name is changed on my most important document that proves my military service. I couldn't be more grateful.
