Low Vision Clinic

We work with non-VA Low Vision eye doctors for comprehensive eye examinations - no longer provided at Fort Harrison. VA has long been recognized as a leader in blind rehabilitation both in the United States and abroad. The Fort Harrison VA Medical Center and VA Medical Centers in Denver and Salt Lake City were selected to provide expanded services to visually impaired Veterans. The Fort Harrison VA Low Vision Clinic has been seeing Veterans, who are not only legally blind, but also those with low vision or functional vision loss. We care for Veterans who have a visual impairment that cannot be corrected with ordinary glasses, contact lenses or surgery. Most often, these people report having a disease process called macular degeneration, glaucoma, or diabetic retinopathy. Typically, patients come to our clinic reporting that they have difficulty performing a visual task such as reading the newspaper, identifying medications, or viewing television.

Network of Care for Veterans & Families

Montana DPHHS

http://montana.networkofcare.org/veterans/#

The Montana Network of Care for Service Members, Veterans, and their Families (SMVF) is a one-stop-shop for services, information, support, advocacy, resources, and more. This public service is an attempt to bring critical information together for all components of the SMVF Community. This comprehensive resource connection is also a valuable tool for Montana as a whole. We feel that bringing information and resources to this website will allow the non-SMVF population to understand how best to support the SMVF population. Further, this website provides an opportunity to help Montanans become more aware of the military cultural challenges that exist, and to focus on being more relational in their ability to support the SMVF Community. Please take the time to become familiar with the site, share it with others in your peer network, and come back often to see what is new. Warrior Strong, Montana Strong!

If you need advice on where to go or who to see about a possible sexual harassment or discrimination complaint, then you should know about the Inspectors General. IG's are an extension of the eyes, ears, and conscience of their commanders. They are also responsible for investigating complaints that come from outside the chain of command. This provides military members, civilian members, and their dependents a channel to present complaints or get advice on a subject that might constitute a complaint.

Warriors and Quiet Waters (WQW) celebrated the official close of the Foundation’s first-ever Capital Campaign in June, 2016! The ‘Home for Healing’ campaign, which began a quiet phase in 2014, has made it possible for WQW to purchase a home of its own – eliminating the dependence upon the costly and unpredictable vacation rental market. Located near the base of the Bridger Mountain Range, the 112 peaceful acres that comprise Quiet Waters Ranch offer a serene respite for warriors seeking for a place to recharge. After undergoing ADA-accessible renovations, Barnard Lodge (the main home at Quiet Waters Ranch) guarantees every program participant an experience devoid of physical barriers in which to promote healing and resilience throughout participation in a therapeutic Fishing Experience.
