DEATH of FAMILY or FRIEND
KAV recommends that you Go To Your Local Veterans Service Office (VSO). They get you ALL the compensation, treatment, benefits and services you’ve EARNED THROUGH YOUR SERVICE, for yourself AND your family. It’s FREE. Our local VSO files 95% of their claims on line, with 94% approvals in about 6 weeks. Find your VSO using the search, above.
When the end comes, these are some of the things you have to take care of for your loved one.
