Student Veterans Club at U of I

Welcome back to the Spring 2021 semester at the University of Idaho! The semester is in full swing now and we are excited to meet new veteran students as well as reconnect with those who have been here a while. Whether you are an undergraduate or a graduate student you will need assistance with your VA funding! If you have not been to our new Veteran's Center please stop in, grab a cup of our delicious Black Rifle Coffee (veteran-owned company) and have your questions or concerns handled by Matthew Barber or Ken Pekie. They work hard for us and they love the veteran community. Go see them today or give them a call.

As we move into Phase III, which was recently announced by Governor Brad Little, we will plan and execute some outdoor activities later this spring! Ideas that have been mentioned include an outdoor BBQ at Robinson Park as well as ski/snowboard trip to one of the region's resorts. More information will be released as we approach these great events and solidify those plans and timelines. Stay tuned. Also, the vaccines for COVID-19 have been arriving on campus and we are all hopeful that there will be a swift return to normality on the Palouse in the near future.

COVID-19 Vaccines for Veterans

The VA is working to provide Covid-19 Vaccines to veterans as quickly and safely as possible. You can sign up for updates on the VA website.

Currently, Mann-Grandstaff VA Medical Center in Spokane is vaccinating veterans with the Moderna vaccine. VA staff are calling veterans, based on CDC guidelines prioritizing veteran patients by age groups and high-risk comorbidities.

At this time, there is no walk-in clinic available at Mann-Grandstaff VAMC for vaccination of veterans. Each veteran will be scheduled for their first and second appointments, 28-days apart. They should allow 30-minutes for the appointment, to include the vaccine, documentation, and observation period to check for any side-effects.

The center has also instituted a new Veteran Vaccination Information hotline at 509-434-7979 to update callers on which categories and age group of veterans are being scheduled for their vaccines. The hotline is a listen-only line, updated weekly. More than 28,000 veterans are enrolled with Mann-Grandstaff VAMC and its clinics.

Veterans arriving at the medical center will still undergo the drive-through screening process before being directed to their appointment or Urgent Care Center. Masks are mandatory and social and physical-distancing protocols remain in effect on campus.

For further information, please refer to the Mann-Grandstaff VAMC COVID website

A note on Wellness from Billy Reeves, President of the Student Veterans Club:

In light of our recent loss in the Vandal veteran family I want all of you to examine yourself and those who are your friends and those who you consider a part of your inner circle. Nobody — and I mean nobody — can go through this life alone. You cannot accomplish all of your goals, whether they are academic, personal or professional, without a strong support system! Please, if you need to speak with someone about those concerns in your life: Do it! Life is such a precious experience and I want to see all of you moving successfully forward in your individual endeavors. You served our great Nation, The United States of America and I thank you for that. Now, it is time for you yourself to move into new chapters and phases of your incredible lives. You are here on the Palouse at the University of Idaho for a reason and one great reason is to secure your education. Vandal Veterans are truly amazing!
Spring is just around the corner so keep your chin up and maintain a positive attitude at all times. Talk with other veterans and reach out to our campus resources if you are having a bad day. I will close by saying that I am proud to be a Vandal Veteran and honored to serve the Vandal Veteran community at the University of Idaho. Finally: Stay healthy, drink copious amounts of water, get quality sleep and best of luck with your individual class schedules! Vandal On Vandal Veterans!

Veterans Debt Management

The VA plans to resume mailing notification letters for benefit overpayments placed in suspension from April 3, 2020 through Jan. 1, 2021. The collection of these overpayments was deferred to provide relief to Veterans struggling financially due to COVID-19. The notification letters will provide Veterans and beneficiaries with important information for resolving their debt or seeking relief if repayment would cause financial hardship.

Ongoing relief efforts include:

  • Temporary hardship suspension for Veterans requesting relief through October 2021
  • Increase contact center operations to provide enhanced assistance
  • Defer Credit Bureau reporting until October 2021
  • Delay referral of delinquent benefit overpayments to the Department of the Treasury until October 2021
  • Extended repayment plans

For benefit overpayments, Veterans and beneficiaries can submit requests online or call 1-800-827-0648. Call volumes are lower Tuesday through Friday.

During the month of February, Education Abroad will host a series of workshops on scholarships for international experiences!
