Title: Disability Compensation The Veteran's Guide Volume ll
Author: Thomas van Hees
Reviewer: Jim Greenwald
ISBN (links go to the MWSA Amazon store): 1604520701
My book is a self-help/ how-to publication. It explains how to negotiate the VA's claim filing process when seeking disability compensation for a service connected injury or condition. This book is a continuation of volume one with new information that was added to the benefits that a veteran qualifies for. It also delves more deeply into Post Traumatic Stress Disorder which was lightly touched on in volume one. It also includes many subjects and information that will help the Afghanistan
and Iraqi veteran. Basically this book covers all new information that was not available when volume one went to press.
Is this just me? I’ve been more than once bitten by the tones in my Internet emailed messages. I thought I’d learned from the past, but along came someone who misinterpreted what I wrote, probably due to tone. Once again, I've become shy, unsure ofmyself.
As for "bitten"– My ancestry includes England where a late 1400s printer translated an Aesop fable line from Greek to "He that hath ben ones begyled by somme other ought to kepe hym wel fro(m) the same." Through centuries of translations came the phrase, “once bitten, twice shy.”
- Lucky Buckaroo Bonus Drawing – To add even more fun to the auction, the first two auction items will be “Eye Glass Repair Kits and Grocery Coupon Cards.” They will be numbered 1-37. After they are sold, I will hand five sealed envelopes to Joyce Gilmour who will open the fifth envelope first. The envelope will contain 1000 buckaroos and a number between 1-37. Whoever purchased the item with that number will receive the buckaroos. Joyce will then open the fourth envelope and so on.
March 23 - 25th.
The book to be discussed is Marcia Sargent's terrific memoir, "Wing Wife: How to to be Married to a Marine Corps Fighter Pilot." The book is fun, rawkus, charming, philosophical, and heartbreaking. It's definitely a must-read. Here's some more information about it: http://www.mwsadispatches.com/sites/default/files/null/WingWifeMarch23_0.pdf
And here's an excerpt from the review I did of it:
