    ATTN: All Military Vets... Valuable Info Inside


    ALL VETS SHOULD COPY THIS


    Comment: Someone has gone to a lot of trouble. If this helps one person, then it was worthwhile. Please pass this on to all Veterans on you e-mail list.
    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.

    From what I have seen people go through, it seems they want you to be "fire and forget". As in after you are no longer of any use to them(exit the service) they dont want to hear from you, aid you, or even complete their side of the contract you signed. Tis bullcrap, if you guys are out there running the risk of taking bullets it just doesnt make sense. I think of Vietnam vets...

    Just bumping for the Vets out there. I know some of the links no longer work, but the names, titles, info, is there enough that one can prolly look it up via google. Since I am about to deploy I don't really have time to find better links for them.
