Below are some links you may find useful.  These links will help you in your quest for information concerning veterans claims, government officials, medical information such as PTSD, how to find a lawyer qualified to practice before the Veterans Administration, Agent Orange issues and a plethora of other useful tools. 

I will add to this page as I find other links that will be of benefit.  Please send me an e-mail if you have some suggestions at: bobn@2ndaerialport.org

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.
