It's now easier for veterans to find services and benefits because "there's an app for that."

The California Department of Veterans Affairs introduced the application Friday in Sacramento. Called "Calvet," the app is for Androids and iPhones. The hope is that the more tech-savvy vets can use the app to find help for them and their families.

State officials say there are 2 million veterans living in California. Counting their families, officials say that makes up to 9 million people they would like to reach.
