About Veterans needing help

davnashville started this conversation

If you are having a hard time then drop me a line. There are hundreds of different ways veterans and their families can get the help they need. If you need medical help or in a tight spot with your finances then let me know and we will try to get you the help you need.

you should have a case worker at your VA -OIF/OEF hospital. but if they are anything like mine, all they will do is hand you a list of contacts. I hope yours is better.
but there is at least 30 very good Organizations that help veterans. you just have to do a lot of typing. some have very long forms, and some are quick and simple. best advise I can give you is be prepared.
-write a cover letter. tell them what your injury is/ when your tour was/ and why you need help (I like to give the events that led up to this point)
-DD214
-Copies of any late bills
-and a short plan of acting on how you will use the funds if granted and how you will try to prevent it from happening again

You should still check out the military sites in my links and make sure. You might have just delt with bad customer service on their part. Call purple heart also they might be able to tell you what to do to get some things.
Sorry you should have gotten something for your served time.

Hi I am an OEF/OIF vet, Currently living in Dallas,TX . I am not disabled but have come across real hard times, after my last tour to Iraq my now ex.wife kicked me out on the street after cheating on me for several months, I have been searching for a stable full time job for the past year, I have just recently got a part time job at UPS and was trying to get a car to drive so I could get to work without having to rely on a friend who will nit be able to drive me to work soon due to school , I am barely able to pay rent and be able to feed myself right now, I recently tried to buy a used car cheap and it turned out to be stolen and I spent all of my savings just to get the car. Any help or assistance would be great, I am a hard worker and don't like to ask for help but my situation continues to get worse. Thanks for your time.
