TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A new website has been launched by the state of Kansas to help link military veterans with educational and employment opportunities.

The new KanVet site was announced this week by Gov. Sam Brownback and Maj. Gen. Lee Tafanelli, state adjutant general. It’s aimed at active duty veterans, as well as members of the National Guard.

Veterans will be able to use the site to find information about educational opportunities in Kansas, including lists of schools and links to scholarship programs.

The employment portion offers links to state agencies, the Kansas National Guard, career fairs and information about starting a business.

Other information about services and programs and veterans can be found through a link on the site to the Kansas Commission on Veterans Affairs.
