All veterans should save this for a reference to ALL Veteran Benefits.

Below are web-sites that provide information on Veterans benefitsand how to file/ask for them.

Accordingly, there are many sites thatexplain how to obtain books, military/medical records,information and howto appeal a denied claim with the VA.

Please pass this information on to every Veteran you know.  Nearly100% of this information is free and available for all veterans, the onlycatch is: you have to ask for it, because they won't tell you about aspecific benefit unless you ask for it.  You need to know what questions toask so the right doors open for you and then be ready to have an advocatewho is willing to work with and for you, stay in the process, and press foryour rights and your best interests.
