Summary

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are approximately 26 million veterans in the United States. In recent years, more than 1.6 million U.S. servicemen and women had tours of duty in Afghanistan and Iraq. When not on active duty, more than 20 percent of these vets do not have health care coverage, and many more are unaware of the hundreds of benefits to which they have access. As a result, many are suffering financial strain during and after deployment. This is a discouraging statistic because the federal and state governments, as well as private foundations, have scholarships and military discounts available only to veterans.

There are billions of dollars in aid available, waiting to be claimed, but the problem is finding and properly applying for these programs. This groundbreaking new book will provide help to those heroic Americans who have answered our government s call to duty.

If you are in the military now, a veteran, or a military family member, you will find this resource invaluable
