Thread Name: BS: News on VA?
Subject: RE: BS: News on VA?
As a 60% disabled vet who thinks the VA walks on water, I am unclear on exactly what your problem is. In order to protect your confidence and to get you assistance right away, may I suggest you call (800) 827-1000, which is a regionalized hot-line for Veterans assistence.

They may not operate 24 hours in Maine, but when you get through, they will give you VA representatives to call who work for you on a case-assignment basis. You will need your DD-214, social security or (prior to '72) your service number, and they can proceed from there. Also each congressman has a VA rep on his staff, who can connect you to the right resources. There is an abundance of help out there if you know how to access it. Good Luck!
