Is the process really that much easier with a VSO? I was considering calling the state DVA for help.

Definitely have a VSO as a Rep. The DVA is a good one or the American legion or VFW.

Good stuff, man! Thanks. I've got a claim submitted; didn't know ALL your tips so I'm doing some follow-up. I've copied your terrific sheet and will help circulate it although I tire of the gatherings of 'formers' who's only topics of discussion seems to be 'how to best try to get the best of the VA'.
Until this Govt Administration was elected and began trying to bankrupt me I was able to survive on my private retirement benefits and SS. I'm helping support a single-mom daughter and I'm glad I'm able but I could sure use some help if I qualify for assistance without dreaded charity.
Again, thanks, my experience is you can always depend on a Brother Marine for the best sincere advice.
