Hawaii surveying female veterans statewide

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

The Hawaii Office of Veterans Services is surveying women veterans to determine how to better meet their needs.

A Hawaii female veterans’ task force recently concluded female veterans suffer from high rates of post-traumatic stress disorder. Many also suffer from the effects of sexual harassment or sexual assault. They are disproportionately jobless and homeless.

The state estimates about 14,000 female veterans are permanent Hawaii residents. The state wants to survey as many of them as possible.

The state will give survey data to health care providers and others who work with women veterans. Respondents won’t provide personal information unless they choose to.

The survey is available at the Spark Matsunaga VA Medical Center on Oahu and veterans’ services offices on Kauai, Maui and the Big Island.

It’s online at www.dod.hawaii.gov/ovs/hawaii-military-womens-survey.
