Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) has re-deployed the CEI website for Army National Guard, Air National Guard, and Air Force Reserve at Army Reserve, Marine Corps Reserve, Navy Reserve, and Coast Guard Reserve continue to report CEI information through their respective Service. 

State-Based Support

Every state and territory in the Nation counts current or former members of the Armed Forces as part of their population. The Nation’s governors recognize the value that these men and women bring home as a result of their service and are implementing programs and investing in resources to support their needs and those of their families, according to a recently updated survey by the National Governors Association (NGA). The NGA's 2015 Report on State and Territorial Support for Members of the Military, Veterans, and Their Families provides a complete overview of each state's support networks.
