Show synopsis According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are approximately 26 million veterans in the United States. In recent years, more than 1.6 million U.S. servicemen and women had tours of duty in Afghanistan and Iraq. When not on active duty, more than 20 percent of these vets do not have health care coverage, and many more are unaware of the hundreds of benefits to which they have access. As a result, many are suffering financial strain during and after deployment. This is a discouraging statistic because the federal and state governments, as well as private foundations, have scholarships and military discounts available only to veterans. There are billions of dollars in aid available, waiting to be claimed, but the problem is finding and properly applying for these programs. This groundbreaking new book will provide help to those heroic Americans who have answered our government s call to duty. You will find all contact information and Web sites included, making it easy to apply for the benefits you are entitled to, while meeting the requirements of the Department of Veterans Affairs and other organizations and private institutions. Here is a small sampling of what you will learn about: the GI Bill, scholarships, grants, companies that offer military discounts, GI Bill eligibility, details of VA loans, National Guard GI Bill, benefits after service, veterans employment, education, and training programs, VA-guaranteed home loan, GI Bill Apprenticeship and OJT Program, Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E), Reserve Education Assistance Program (REAP), disability compensation, employment and training, frequently asked questions, asking for local discounts, GI Bill education programs, homeless veterans programs, state veteran benefits directory, survivor benefits, VA appeals process, VA benefits explained, VA hospitals and facilities, veteran disability compensation, veterans health care, veterans life insurance, veterans pension programs, vocational rehabilitation, burial and memorial benefits.
