Question

Below are web-sites found 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.

Palidan:

Those are great links ... you have a more kind & compassionate side with your new name.

Did you drink some "liberal koolaide" .... just kidding now. :wacko:

As always ... we all have our own political views ... but putting those aside and putting the veterans & the troops first is ALWAYS in everyone's best interest.

Take care and keep up those great posts.

Alan .... has posted a zillion links on the old and new board and even if ONLY one of those links helps someone ... it is well worth it.

... Magoo .. aka .. Bill ... :)

WOW!!!!!

This stuff sure takes time to compile and I certainly appreciate all you did here Paladin-

This board-thanks to the members who have taken the time to post these many links-truly has everything a vet could need to help resolve their claim.

And there are also so many units with web sites-that list would be voluminous- and I know vets who have gotten buddy statements via their unit sites.

What a great job you did here- I pasted it all into Word-to save it and pass it on-

Thank you very much! Berta
