• Proposal Paper: Veterans Affairs Benefits

    Pages: 6

    6 pages in length. The main thing on the minds of every soldier coming home from military conflict is to realign themselves with the lives they left behind. Work, friends, home life, familial relationships – all of these and more require a great measure of readjustment for veterans whose entire existence has centered upon war. Even those without any battle-related encumbrances - such as mental, physical or emotional injuries – still need help assimilating back into the society they left behind in order to protect. Veterans Affairs (VA) has been an instrumental force in providing much-needed education, home loans, pensions, medical care, life insurance and vocational rehabilitation for both the veteran and his/her family, however, as beneficial as VA has been in helping veterans piece their collective lives back together with such assistance, the system has become so overloaded that more and more veterans are going without benefits they are qualified to receive. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

Advocates for veterans benefits have taken to publishing articles to advise qualified military personnel of myriad benefits about which they might  not know. Drugs, medical supplies and dental care, for example, are three areas for which Green (1995) campaigns on behalf of Paralyzed Veterans of America; if not for his  efforts, many vets would not know of the all-encompassing reach of VA benefits. Even when veterans are keenly aware of their qualifications for benefits, attempting to obtain them  is too often met with great frustration and long waiting periods. III.
