SERVICE, HELP AND INFORMATION ORGANIZATIONS FOR VETERANS

The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) is one of the best organizations when it comes to fighting for your benefits.  Even if you are not a member, the VFW has Service Officers at most VA facilities that can help you with your claims.

The American Legion is the largest veteran’s organization in the world.  Again, they are a great source of information and help if you need it.  The Legion can represent you in the claims process and you don’t have to be a member.

A great organization with incredible resources and lots of information is the Disabled American Veterans (DAV).  Just click the link to peruse their services and see if they might be able to help with your particular situation.

Here is the link to AMVETS, another great service organization.

Even if you aren’t a Vietnam vet the Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) can provide great information on VA benefits and dealing with the VA.  This is a great site to explore.

USDR is the Uniformed Services Disabled Retirees.  This is a great site that is for retirees who are disabled.
