Vet Financial Needs Too Great for Non Profits Now
Veterans who become unable to work due to PTSD, TBI, pain, etc after filing an initial claim (or not filing any upon leaving the military) now are waiting over a year to have their claims re-examined. I am seeing even the most financially prudent families go through their saving and no decision in sight.
Requests for financial help from these vets are being turned down by the non profit sector. Non profits such as Rebuild Hope have limited funds and these funds are meant to help a short term need not several months of support.
Only the government, by hiring more people in the disability chain, or the very wealthy citizens of this country have the resources to help pull these veterans and their families back from the abyss.
