A Wealth of Valuable Links for

 Veteran Benefits


ALL VETS SHOULD COPY THIS
Someone has gone to a lot of trouble to compile this...

If this helps one person, then it was worthwhile. 
  
Pass on to all veterans! 
 
 
Below are web-sites that provide information on Veterans benefits and how to file/ask for them.
Accordingly, there are many sites that explain how to obtain books, military/medical records, information
and how to appeal a denied claim with the VA.  Please pass this information on to every Veteran you know.  
Nearly 100% of this information is free and available for all veterans, the only catch is: you have to ask for it,
because they won't tell you about a specific benefit unless you ask for it.  You need to know what questions to ask
so the right doors open for you -- and then be ready to have an advocate who is willing to work with and for you,
stay in the process, and press for your rights and your best interests.
