"American Veterans and Service-members Survival Guide"

Available free to download to your computer as a PDF file, at www.NVLSP.org

The authors of the "Veterans Benefits Manual" from Lexis-Nexis wrote this 617 page guide to your active duty and veterans benefits in easy to understand lay mans terms.

The National Veterans Legal Services Program (NVLSP) is an independent nonprofit organization that has worked since 1980 to ensure that the U.S. government keeps its pact with our nation's 25 million veterans and active duty personnel by providing them the federal benefits they have earned through their service to our country.

As a conduit for change against unfair government practices, NVLSP has been instrumental in the passage of landmark veterans' rights legislation. Lawsuits brought by NVLSP attorneys have forced the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to pay hundreds of millions of dollars in benefits to disabled veterans and their families and have forced the military departments to give millions of dollars in back pay to veterans.

NVLSP recruits, trains, and assists thousands of lawyer and non-lawyer advocates who represent veterans and active duty military personnel for free. Our publications empower veterans, current service members, their families, and their advocates to obtain the benefits they're entitled to by clearly outlining their rights under the law.

Veterans, I've ordered and read NVLSP's "Veterans Benefits Manual and Title 38 CFR" on CD/ROM and in book form every year, for the last ten years.

These are the Lexis-Nexis reference materials Disabled American Veterans' National Service Officers use to represent veterans.

This guide was written by the same authors, in easy to understand terms. Download the guide to your computer, and use the Table of Contents to research the different topics you need answers to.

Thanks for this link.

I won all of my past claims by reading the VBMs by NVLSP.

I pulled out my first VBM yesterday as it as some old historic rate charts.

It was published in 1991.

I will check out the link you gave us.

I spoke to Ron Abrams and Bart a few times over the years regarding the VBM info and I contact Rick Spataro from time to time.These NVLSP lawyers dedicate the VBM to us advocates every year and they are very willing to answer legal questions.

I see my annual purchase of the VBM as an investment that has paid off many many times and I feel comfortable calling or emailing these lawyers if the need arises to clarify something.

Rick's explanation of Nehmer Footnote one-that he sent to me in email - which is in our AO forum here -has been important info from a Nehmer lawyer for many vets and widows coming under Nehmer due to Footnote one in the Nehmer Training Guide.

I am a Footnote one Nehmer widow.

NVLSP has also joined the Court challenge to the new PTSD regs.

Osceola's response to his people, the Seminoles, was

simply "They(the US Army)have guns, but so do we."

Sameo to us -They (VA) have 38 CFR ,38 USC, and M21-1- but so do we.
