Hello. This is my first post on hadit. I joined this forum because it seemed like a great place to connect with United States veterans and their loved ones. By the end of this year, there will be less than a million living World War II veterans. It’s more important than ever to share the stories of service from those who fought bravely for our country. I’m representing Glimpses Into History, a project of the Clovis Veterans Memorial District, in finding veterans willing to share a video testimonial of their experience as a soldier. The CVMD has created a way for veterans to record their stories from any Webcam-enabled computer. Those stories are then published to an online directory, so that anyone can view the veteran’s personal experience and share it with the world for free. Thank you, and I look forward to contributing positively to this community.
Howdy to All, It's been a while since I've posted here. I've been busy with helping the wife take care of our baby girl we had this past March, and with also assembly my own NOD before the deadline next year. I have been lurking and reading though, and appreciate all of the input and advice. I have an interesting one, and I'm not sure what to do to help. I have a friend that lives down the road from my home. He is 87 years old, and a World War II Navy Veteran. He has never been on any VA disability, nor received any benefits to my knowledge. He has hearing aids from pretty major hearing loss, and is trying to get the VA to help him on the cost of the hearing aids, and perhaps his eyewear (glasses). He only makes less than $1,300.00 a month in Social Security/retirement. Apparently, he had somebody help him complete paperwork at the VA clinic in Beaumont, Texas and was "placed" in Priority Group 8g due this household income exceeding the VA's established financial thresholds. He provided me a copy of his denial of services letter, and was hoping that I might be able to help. I don't know that he has used any Veterans service organization yet. Does anybody have any ideas of where I can send him, or what I can do to help him get things moving? I would think that a WWII Veteran would be able to get rated for a service connection, and provided for pretty quickly. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Mark
