The 4,000,000 who came home from World War I found plenty of promises,
but a country unprepared either to reabsorb or support them.

"IF ANY MAN SHALL BE SENT FORTH AS A SOLDIER......"

Our government long ago recognized a duty to provide for injured Veterans. As early as 1636 the Plymouth Colony mandated that,

if any man shalbee sent forth as a souldier
and shall return maimed
hee shalbee maintained competently
by the Collonie during his life

In 1865 as Abraham Lincoln delivered his Second Inaugural Address, he recognized the enormous toll of death and injury inflicted on America's soldiers during the Civil War. As part of his plan to heal the nation he spoke of the need,

 to care for him who shall have borne the battle
and for his widow and his orphan...

Read "Old Soldiers' Soldier" in Time Magazine, dated 01 April 1946 about our country's responsibility to our veterans.

THE USMC SCOUT/SNIPER ASSOCIATION OFFERS ASSISTANCE

How do I file a claim?            What causes delays in the claims process?
How do I communicate with the VA?            How do I get disability compensation?
What about my pension?            What is a rating schedule?            What is my claim number?

There are approximately 390,000 claims pending with the Veterans Administration.  The process can be overwhelming and mired in red tape. 

The USMC Scout/Sniper Association is fortunate to have Steven Teague as our Veteran Affairs Representative.  Steve is the first line of contact for our members that need assistance.  He can provide benefit advocacy and guide the member through the VA process in filing a claim.
