Default For Veterans....

ALL VETS SHOULD COPY THIS
Someone has gone to a lot of trouble..
If this helps one person, then it was worthwhile.
Pass on to all veterans!


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.

At least your foot is in the door. Before I left Drum, VA told me to claim EVERYTHING. Even if I got at least a 0% rating, it was at LEAST in the system. Much easier to upgrade something than trying to get something new into the system.

What was wrong with your DD-214?

For some reason VA has a different ETS date than what is on my 214. Had a hard time verifying identity one day.

If you have documents/orders/awards to prove that you have them/been deployed, then you can submit copies to NPRC and have your 214 amended.
