    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

Best Online School For Veteran's


What schools have you attended online with Voc Rehab that are Veteran Friendly? I was recently approved for Voc Rehab and am researching what online schools are best.

I have attended university of phoenix and western governers university in the past with GI Bill, found both OK but am looking for some other input.

Thank you

You can go to a book store and get a book that describes all the universites and colleges that offer distance learning. Many very well known schools offer distance learning even in subjects like computer science and other science things where you can make some money.

American Military University-

I was their second civilian enrollment under Chap 35 in 2003 but they are active mil and veteran friendly and most of their students are vets or in the Military.(as well as their faculty. I only had 2 civilian professors there.)

They are familiar with VA educational benefits and have a wide range of degree courses.

They transferred most of my credits from a traditional college into my degree program.

I agree with everyone below and find them to be great for vets. I wish I did more research, but I am attending Capella and love it. I have no problems getting items needed and things are running smoothly. I feel it is a personal preferance and what you would like to study to make a determing factor. Best of luck...

My daughter attends American Military University and is doing quite well. She is about half way through for her MBA. Great GPA too. The classes are very hard and do require a lot of time to study, but when she is done with this, she will go for her Doctorate too. All under my Chapter 35, thank heavens. She previous had her BA prior to my 100% PT award.

She also does the work program with Dept of Vets Affairs, and is paid there for this at minimum wage rate.

Please be careful on what you do choose. I saw a program on PBS about some veterans and some of the most advertised colleges were just "recruiting" veteran students. One student had TBI and all were left pretty much in debt, without a degree. Transfer of credits were an issue also. One link might be:


Good luck and you are doing the right thing to check them out.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!


      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
