One of the groups that has existed for over 100 years that supports the Servicemembers and Veterans of the US Military is the VFW, or the Veterans of Foreign Wars Organization. The VFW, or veterans of foreign wars organization also gives support and often helps facilitate veterans in applying and receiving their full benefits that they qualify for.
One large benefit that veterans are eligible for is support for any service connected injury or illness. The VA hospital offers care and medical support for veterans, and is funded by the federal government. The VFW or Veterans of Foreign Wars organization is a support organization that operates on a local level, giving aid and support to veterans needing services, or needing assistance in applying for federal government VA services. The men and women Servicemembers that serve our country and who become veterans are proud of their service, and suitably so. It does not matter if you are single, married or a male or female, you are qualified for VFW membership if you served overseas and are a veteran with 180 days service or more that otherwise qualified you for military Veterans Status. Membership in the VFW is voluntary, but it has many benefits that can aid a veteran Servicemember. Membership in the VFW entails a free VFW member honor roll listing, and you are eligible to join the Pentagon Federal Credit Union. Military personnel can rest assured that after their service commitment is up and they separate that there are benefits that they qualify for and can receive. The VFW facilities are located in local communities, they sometimes will meet in after hours in a conference room or facility that is used for official military business during the day, or they typically have their own facilities located in communities across the United States. There are a number of life insurance and car insurance programs, as well as insurance for medical supplementary care to supplement the VA care available to veterans.

I am looking for help I am a life member vfw,vva,order of the purple heart,and dav. I am at 80% service connected. I am trying every place I can for help. For years I have tried to get the VA to fix my jaw. this year the TUC VA sent me to an outside oral spec he told me I have the worst jaw he has ever seen it is equal to a chicken bone and when I fall it will shatter. My primary told me there 3 hospitals that do this opp one in FL one in Washington and banner Mesa and the VA will not do anything for me. I told them I was in contact with the advocate at which point I was strongly told he wont do anything for me.. well a few weeks have past and I had to back to my primary I have been in extreme jaw pain they did not treat me at all and said I told you you have use your Medicare I told them I can’t pay the bill they looked at me and said how much money do I have. I did not think I said I have 10000 in my ira and how do I know it wont cover the bill./ I went home and took it another 2 days then the ER TUC and had to go back again they sent me to a Dentist in casa grande I been there twice and still in extreme pain now they are calling the VA again I don’t know whats next. even getting infection taken care of I still will shatter. I got a email telling me I can get an appointment with my primary I told them I don’t ever want to go back there.. I am just about ready to give up and for the first time I told them I don’t think I can stand the pain and may hurt myself. if there is any hope you can contact Don DeWaal at 8125721968 he can talk for me no one can understand me over the phone.
