FORMS & RESOURCESPublish

 

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.
