Too often Veterans return home without knowing all the care and benefits that are available to them. If you know a recently returned Veteran make sure they know how to access what they have earned.

Have you recently returned from military service? Now is the time to take advantage of the benefits VA offers OEF/OIF Veterans.
Below are just a few of the programs VA offers:

5 Years Cost Free Health Care
OEF/OIF/OND combat Veterans can receive cost free medical care for any condition related to their service in the Iraq/Afghanistan theater for five years after the date of their discharge or release. Enroll in VA health care. Don't delay, apply today!

180 Day Dental Benefit
OEF/OIF/OND combat Veterans may be eligible for one-time dental care — but you must apply with 180 days of your separation date from active duty.

Find Family Support at Vet Centers
If you have served in ANY combat zone, local Vet Centers can help you and your family with readjustment counseling and outreach services — for free.

This site http://www.oefoif.va.gov/ provides information on Veterans Benefits, Veterans, Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom, New Dawn, OEF, OIF, OND, Education, Home Loan benefits, Insurance Benefits, GI Bill, Health Care, Vet Centers and many, many other topics.

You've served your country, now you are ready for a new challenge. What do you want to do next? Get help finding and securing a job, browse career opportunities, or learn more about working at the VA. http://www.oefoif.va.gov/

Always great information to put out to those Veterans who weren't aware of the benefits that they are entitled to!

Yes, I do, and, yes, I am. I have TriCare and VA disability, and I work both sides to the middle, when necessary. I also used my G.I. Bill benefits to the max, and I've used my VA Certificate of Eligibility three times to buy homes. I reckon the only thing left now is a flag and a marble marker...hopefully, that's a ways off yet!!!

U need 2b aware that if u desire 2have a military burial u must apply in advance bcuz there's a backlog. There are forms u must submit along w/ur DD214. Do it so ur family won't be scrambling &/or put on hold during that time when no one is thinking clearly❣️
