VET QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Rolling Thunder, Chapter One TN



Excellent information for all veterans

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.&
