 Former soldier creates app for Oklahoma veterans:

A new Android app being made available at no cost for Muskogee, Okla.-area veterans will plug them into practically every resource they could need or want. The Barracks is the brainchild of Army veteran Victor Lezama. The app includes direct access to a crisis hotline, assistance with medical claims, job-assistance programs, housing information, recreation and veteran discounts.
“Our main concern is for veterans in crisis — let’s get them help as soon as possible, even if to talk,” Lezama said, noting the first thing a veteran will see when the app opens is a telephone number to a crisis hotline. “My favorite thing is that veterans can click on Crisis Hotline and have the option to text, call or chat with somebody for help.”
The Barracks is available for download now on Google Play. An iPhone version of the app is expected to be available in two weeks.
