V.A. Helps Millions Of Veterans

...Did you know that a V.A. patient receives prescriptions and services that are either free or have a small co-pay ($15 or $50, $8 or $9 for 30-day prescriptions)?  Some examples include x-rays, blood work, EKGs, flu shot or other shots, readjustment counseling, hospice care, every type of prosthetic,  eyeglasses and hearing aids if needed, and many others including every major type of operation...

Some veterans look to hinder or prevent veterans from learning about their federal, state or county benefits.  For more than 18 years, including over 11 years at the Hamilton Mall every first Wednesday of the month from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., I have been providing this information.

As a V.A. patient myself for over 23 years, I will continue to assist and provide current V.A. and other government information to all veterans, soldiers, their family members and any interested citizen.  I have been fortunate to have many V.A. officials in Washington, D.C., Atlanta, and Wilmington, Del. recognize me as a veterans advocate. They keep me supplied with information by fax, letter, phone, and direct shipments of supplies. Veterans must learn and seek facts and then talk or write about issues. Learn about V.A. National Benefits at (800) 827-1000 and V.A. National Healthcare at (877) 222-8387.
