The Veterans Administration Goes Web 2.0


Maybe this is the start of something big in government.

In an in an attempt to better connect to the younger demographic of returning soldiers, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is embracing the world of Web 2.0 with its Returning Servicemembers page. They have launched the department’s first public blog, a Youtube channel, a Facebook page, and a Secondlife island. And the VA has also set up a mobile site at where returning soldiers will find news, videos, facility locations, contact info and more.

We hope this is a trend that spreads rapidly throughout government.
