RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina is launching an initiative aimed at serving active-duty military, veterans and their families.

Gov. Pat McCrory’s office announced Monday that the state has established NC4VETS. The Department of Administration’s Division of Veterans Affairs calls it a “one-stop-shop” information resource launched in conjunction with other state agencies.

The first major product is the NC4Vets Resource Guide, an inter-agency catalog with 2,000 data points detailing job, education benefits and health services across the state. The NC4VETS Resource Guide is part of a multimedia effort that includes a website and toll-free call center.

McCrory announced the program during a trip to the North Carolina Veterans Home in Salisbury, where he presented the Order of the Long Leaf Pine to World War II-era veteran Claude W. Lyerly, who recently turned 103.
