Fellow Veteran,


You are receiving this email because you are a veteran and you previously participated in one of our studies conducted by the University of Southern California (USC). 


My name is Dr. Castro, a retired Army colonel, and currently a Professor at the University of Southern California (USC).  We are asking that you participate in another study of veterans where we ask you to share your experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic.  The purpose of this study is to improve the services and care provided to veterans and their families during these challenging times.  We are asking you to complete a brief survey.  It will take you approximately 20-30 min to complete the survey.


More information about this study can be found in the attached information sheet.  The below link will take you to the survey.


We hope that you are willing to participate.  As always, thank you for your time and thank you for your service.
