Why Did I Write This Book?
"As a veteran myself, and a squared away attorney who has helped hundreds of veterans with their disability claims, I know firsthand just how drawn out the process can be.
Unfortunately, applying for veterans' benefits and navigating the system on your own could make your claim dead on arrival, and a weak or incomplete claim could languish for a long period of time before ultimately being denied, leaving you feeling let down by the country you have served.
I realized that many people do not have access to solid, honest information about veterans' disability benefits and I wanted to change that. The better you understand the system, the quicker you can receive the benefits you deserve." - Wade Coye
