In a military veteran's seemingly endless search for help finding housing and education options, employment or counseling, the results are frequently the same. They give up, frustrated by the process. Sign-up processes are sometimes complicated by lengthy drives. Or long, discouraging computer searches. To simplify this, the City of Lacey came up with
