The United States has been providing help for injured veterans since the days of the Continental Congress. Today, our country has the world’s most extensive system of veteran support. Unfortunately, if you were injured during your service, it can be hard to access the benefits you need to manage in civilian life. Like any large bureaucracy, the VA often moves slowly and makes mistakes.
The Road to Your Benefits May Twist and Turn
Sometimes, it’s easy to show the VA that you were
injured in the line of duty. An example would be losing a limb in
battle. Other disabilities —PTSD, an illness from exposure to Agent
Orange, even depression —are more difficult. It’s best to have a
compassionate and professional guide you to help compile evidence,
fill out forms, and go to court on your behalf.
