Subject: Fw: Websites with information for veterans

Good info to share  --

 

----------------- 

 Below are web-sites 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.
