You served your country, and in the process you were injured. It could be a bad back. It could be loss of limb. Or maybe you're not sure if you're entitled to any government benefits. American Legion service officers file thousands of VA claims each year on behalf of America's veterans. And the Legion's Benefits Calculator can help you prepare to file a claim.
Peter Gaytan, executive director of The American Legion's Washington's office, appeared on the March 29 broadcast of C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal.” He discussed several veterans issues with show host John McCardle, and answered several call-in questions from viewers.
Gaytan discussed how The American Legion, with more than two million members and nearly 3,000 accredited service officer representatives, reach out to America’s veterans and help them get benefits they have earned through their service. He said the Legion is continuously working with the Department of Veterans Affairs to improve the delivery of care and benefits to veterans.
