President Ford speaking on the bureaucracy of the government said.
"Heck if I don't understand it what chance have you got."
While we can't change it, we hope this will make it easier.

1. The Veterans Alliance VA Survival Guide.
Commonsense advice on how to deal with the government's largest bureaucracy. If you thought the service was tough you ain't seen nothing yet!
2. The Veterans Advocate and Service Officer List.
Would you go the IRS without an accountant, to trial without a lawyer? No! Use your veterans service organizations advocates and/or county and state veterans service officers who work for you for free. They are there for every vet and family member regardless if you belong to them or not. They also work for you not the VA. Their reputations are made on what they get accomplished not the number of papers they handle.

  • Keep People Informed
Last But Not Least - Keep your family and a trusted friend informed on what you are doing, what has happened and where all of your documents are kept. If something were to happen to you where does your family stand if they can't find the information. If you need a secure place and don't have one contact us at vastorage@veterans.org and we will assist you by scanning them and providing storage in a secure directory on the web.

Be sure and buy a notebook. Not just one with paper but one with about five divders and pockets with it. Keep a copy of everything in the appropriate pocket and make complete notes of everything you have done, who you have talked to, the time, place and gist of the conversation. Also copies of everything the VA sends you and copies of everything you turn in. You can get notebooks like these from Office Max, Office Depot and other stores and they cost about 4 to 5 dollars. They are sometimes worth their weight in gold at least from the email we receive telling us this was one of the most important pieces of advice they got.
