To complement the CVSP endeavor and provide a transferable resource beyond, OCP drafted a comprehensive New Jersey resource guide for service providers, "The OCP Field Guide -- Creating an Environment for Veteran Success in the 21st Century." The original "Guide," now in its first reprint, will be expanded for national dissemination both in print and electronically (with the assistance of the American Council on Education and Wal-Mart) to thousands of additional institutions and veteran service providers.
