If you or a relative served in any branch of the U.S. military, you may be
eligible for certain financial, medical and educational benefits. Obtaining
these veterans' benefits requires some research and paperwork.
The Department of Veterans Affairs breaks down the
entitlements into several categories:
There is a wide range of
educational benefits available to service
persons, their families and their dependents. The Post-9/11 GI Bill provides financial support for education and housing to individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate service after September 10, 2001, or individuals discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days.

Compensation and Pension Benefits
If you suffered a disability or injury during your service, you may be
eligible for service-connected compensation. A non-service connected pension
is available for those who meet eligibility and demonstrate need. View the
