With the appeals process requiring years to resolve disputes, deserving veterans and their dependents are left confused and frustrated by the agency and a system that was created to serve them. In The Veteran's Survival Guide, veterans’ advocate John D. Roche equips veterans with the knowledge they need to submit well-grounded claims the first time, stating as Rule #1 that, “If you don’t submit evidence to support your claim it will be denied.”
Written in an accessible self-help style, The Veteran's Survival Guide should be required reading for all veterans or veterans’ dependents who wish to obtain their well-earned benefits, and for those officials of veterans’ service organizations whose job it is to assist veterans with their claims.
"BEST DAMN BOOK ON VA CLAIMS EVER WRITTEN! . . . This is 'the gold standard' of this genre. This is truly the best and most helpful book on the subject that I have come across in my three decades of helping veterans. . . . Author John D. Roche has taken all his personal experience of having worked for the VA and for veterans in Florida and put it into readable, simple, and easy-to-follow language. Not only does he tell you what to do, but he also gives you insights on how the VA operates and makes decisions on claims. If you have a claim to file or have one being processed right now, then you should run down and buy this book I sincerely mean that. You cannot afford not to have a copy. . . . I most highly recommend this book for every veteran. . . . The MWSA awards this book five stars--the highest rating we can give."
"Highly recommended for public libraries."
