The Process

Just wanted to give all vets young and old a heads up on receiving your deserved benefits from current and past wars you fought in. Myself, I am a vet of the Vietnam War. I served on the River Boasts Div 593. I was exposed to agent orange which caused me to get diabetes type II. I tried filing a claim myself, but was unsuccessful. I did not know the ins and outs of how the VA worked. Since I was wounded twice, I decided to talk with the Military Order Of The Purple Heart. I explained my situation and where I stood with my claim. In order to have your claim filed properly, someone with a vets organization needs to act on your behalf as an advocate. You may seek one from the following: Military Order Of The Purple, another could be through the Vets Of Foreign Wars. It is very important you have a physical or evaluation set up so you have a diagnosis. The process of receiving your benefits takes a good year; so start now. Good Luck!
