Veteran’s Resource Links 4

veterans%203

The following list was sent to my staff recently and a suggestion was to create a permanent page for Vets and their families. As resources in the country become more and more constrained, it will become even more important to help those Vets who are struggling. They have done much for us. We owe them at least some help in return. The newest links are at the bottom of the page.

If you find any bad or broken links, put a remark in the comments section and I will do my best to fix.

Mister Mac

Below are web-sites that provide information on Veterans benefits and how to file/ask for them. Accordingly, there are many sites that explain how to obtain books, military/medical records, information and how to appeal a denied claim with the VA. Please pass this information on to every Veteran you know. Nearly 100% of this information is free and available for all veterans, the only catch is: you have to ask for it, because they won’t tell you about a specific benefit unless you ask for it. You need to know what questions to ask so the right doors open for you and then be ready to have an advocate who is willing to work with and for you, stay in the process, and press for your rights and your best interests.

  2. Hi,

    I came across the Lean Submariner while searching for veteran’s organizations to reach out to about mesothelioma awareness. Thanks so much for all that you and your hard-working organization are offering for those who are in need of the resources. My grandfather served in Korea, and I know that if he were still alive today, how appreciative he would be of a site like yours.

    I contacted you because I’m part of the Community Outreach team at Mesothelioma Guide. 1/3 of all mesothelioma patients are veterans, and approximately 6,000 veterans afflicted with this asbestos-caused cancer died between 1999 and 2005 alone. The reason this cancer targets so many veterans is because of the prevalence of asbestos use in the military in the past. Part of our mission is to spread awareness to veterans and their families. Our website offers free veteran specific resources and support for patients and families.

    I noticed you have a link for veteran related resources, here – https://www.mesotheliomaveterans.org/. I think our Veteran’s Page would be a great addition and benefit to your users. Do you mind including our link as well?

    Have a Great Day and Best Regards 

  3. Hey there,

    Hope your week has been going great! I’m contacting you today because I reached out to you a month ago about helping veterans who have mesothelioma and I just wanted to touch base again.

    If it’s not too much to ask, would you mind including our site, MesotheliomaVeterans.org, onto your page? We’ve had the privilege of helping veterans get the resources and support they need, and we won’t stop until we’ve reached every last one!

    Cheers,
