Youngkin announces meeting date for veterans survivors task force

The first meeting of the Preserving Virginia Military Survivors and Dependents Education Task Force will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. June 10 at the War Memorial in Richmond, Governor Glenn Youngkin announced Friday.

The task force was established to address recent changes made by the General Assembly to the Virginia Military Survivors and Dependents Education Program (VMSDEP).

I am proud that so many Virginians, especially the many veterans who have already reached out to volunteer on behalf of our military families and all Virginians, are coming together to offer solutions to help preserve and sustain this important program for the future,” Gov. Glenn Youngkin said in a news release. “The Task Force will give stakeholders a venue to provide important information on the program, express their concerns and offer feedback on implementation guidance and suggestions for changes.”

The release states that General Assembly members have been invited to formally participate in the task force.

Virginians can provide feedback to the Task Force ahead of the June 10th meetingby emailing PreservingVMSDEP@governor.virginia.gov.

According to the release, the Task Force will be co-chaired by Secretary of Veterans and Defense Affairs Craig Crenshaw, a retired Major General in the United States Marine Corps, and Secretary of Education Aimee Rogstad Guidera. Lieutenant Governor Winsome Earle-Sears, Attorney General Jason Miyares, and their offices will participate in the Task Force’s work.
