    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Well, I'm not Carlie, Berta, Wings, TBird, John or Pete, so you can take what I say with a grain of salt (PLEASE take what I say with a grain of salt), but, the VA Medical Center probably is not the place that you need to go to find out the info that you are requiring. I would, however, call the VA GI Bill number and ask them, or, you may even want to check with your local RO, but, they'll probably just tell you the same thing.

And, yes, $3000 has been appropriated for each GI need "emergency funds" until they can figure out that there are MANY who want to take advantage of the NEW, IMPROVED, GI BILL..............................................duh, gee, errrr, oooooops! (sometimes, EVEN THE VA astounds me in their lack of planning, and, trust me, that takes a lot of "astonishment power")!

Now then, I'll bow out and let the folks that you requested help you out.

Besides, it's time for my nap.

And, your son is a grown man, let HIM get upset and call them.

just sayin'

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
