Hello all you fellow and sister Vets.

First of all: Thank you for your service!

I work for the Veterans Affairs Department. As part of my Community Outreach I have been authorized to offer to assist any Vets who are thinking of applying for any sort of VA Benefits. This includes anything from health care to possible Disability claims. (Either Service- or Non-Service Connected).

The procedure for applying for this stuff can indeed by rigorous and often confusing.

Think you might be elgible? Questions? Comments? Frustrations? Critiques of our System? Please let me know. I will do my best to help, and if I cannot I can certainly put you in touch with somebody who CAN!

Thanks for your time! And please respond if you are a vet and simply want to chat about any topic related to that.

Drew.

Please stop advertising for Vets. I appreciate your desire to help, but there are very few if any on here, so this isn't the appropriate place. If you feel it is necessary, put it in your sig that you can help. (Click "edit my signature" when you are about to make a post) But please stop spamming the forums.

Never mind. I see that you are NOT a mod.

So it is probably an excellent idea for you to not worry about my Threads. If you do not like them then do not read them. Go read whatever 18 year-old little girls read.

There ARE vets and also families and friends of vets here on DDO. I have spoken to them. Also, it is a part of my job to try and assist Vets via whatever medium I can. Nobody has ever complained before, and in fact I have gotten a good response on my PTSD thread.

Thanks for your advice, but I believe I will respectfully ignore it and continue posting as I deem fit.

Wow...I just checked some of your past posts.

Drinking game? Somebody who engages in that silliness has the gall to call my Thread here inappropriate?

Shame on you.

Just saying man. It's just that I can't help but note that tinge of hypocrisy.

Btw, how does a Veteran Affairs department "approve" a thread on a debating website?

There's no need to be overzealous about your posting here. I know a good deal about the VA. Hell, my Grandpa is buried right in the cemetery there. Your efforts are best served in another avenue of communication, as you're not likely to turn up many combat vets here.

Also, demeaning members isn't exactly reflecting the cause of the VA off in a good way.

As in my employer has allowed me to engage this Thread while I am here at work at the VA. It is a part of what we call our Community Outreach Program.

Thus...since my employer IS the VA...my thread here is "VA Approved."

Hey Vets and/or Family Members!!

Been gone awhile so I wanted to give this thread a Bump. And still I offer, as a VA employee AND Navy veteran, if anybody reading this is thinking of applying for VA benefits, either SC or NSC, let me know your questions and I will do my best to help!!

Thanks!!
