There can never be too much information or assistance on how to navigate the Department of Veterans’ Administration due to its complexity and duality; service benefits and health care.
I’ve not met Mr. Peters, but here’s a bit of his background from his blog:
I am a Persian Gulf War era disabled veteran. The Navy retired me after 14 years of service, on Christmas Eve 1996. Since then I have worked with Veteran Service Organizations and the Department of Veterans Affairs. During this time, as a result of my efforts, I’ve helped veterans and their families get over $1 million in benefits they’ve earned. It’s not the money I’m focused on. It’s the vast improvement in the quality of life for the veterans and their families that drives me.
So, give his blog a look. His most recent entry discusses Service-Connected injuries.
