Veterans Benefit Resource List

This is list of websites 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.  Most of this information is free (I haven’t found any that charge, but I like disclaimers) and available for all veterans.  You have to ask for what you want.
