A Hand Up for Veteran in Need
Today’s Case of the Week comes from our Sarasota, FL office written by our regional manager, Bob Graham.
A local woman just lost her mother a couple of months ago. When this happened she decided to bring her father down to live with her from Missouri. 
He has a number of physical issues – essentially stemming from a jeep accident when he served during the Korean “conflict” – which has affected his quality of life. 
He approached the VA many times on getting some pension benefits but it has been resisted and he has not even heard from them for the last 1 1/2 years. 
She wanted advice on how best to have the situation looked at now that he is in FL, asked one of the local Sam’s Club employees on where to go, and she was told to contact our office. I went through the various possible channels with her, suggested the most relevant contact for her and she will follow up – keeping us informed on how it is going. Veterans’ Outreach is frequently used as a valuable information source as well as a possible donor of financial assistance.
We are happy would could help this veteran find the answers he so desperately needs.
