Veteran Guidelines for Best Practices in the Classroom provided by the Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs.
Military Cultural Competence - This is an interactive online training provided by the Center for Deployment Psychology "to assist civilian mental health providers in better understanding, communicating, and effectively interacting with Service members and their families."
