Look this list over, maybe there is something for you.

List Of Veteran Resources On The Net

Below are web-sites 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, general information, and how to appeal a denied claim with the VA. Nearly 100% of this information is free and available for all veterans. The only catch is that you have to ask for it because they won't tell you about a specific benefit unless request 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 you and work for you, stay in the process, and press for your rights and your best interests.

THANK YOU!!! No wonder getting information from them is so hard at times. I sometimes wish I've spent my tax dollars somewhere else.
