“This post is representing all branches of the military. I want veterans to know your benefits: Where to go? What’s available? There are many difficulties in knowing the military process and tremendous run around to get anything done. IT TAKES YEARS TO RECEIVE AND PROCESS BENEFITS. Veterans must be persistent and never give up. MANY DO!” – Carla Grace Baldassari,
