November 2, 2021
Hosted by Dr. Melissa L. Strawser
Did you know that eight out of 10 veterans are not receiving the benefits they deserve by law. Less than 25 percent (or 4.9 million) of veterans alive today receive disability benefits by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs In this episode, Dr. Melissa will be taking with Brian Reese about his book, "You Deserve It: The Definitive Guide to Getting the Veteran Benefits You've Earned" and exploring why Veterans are not receiving the benefits and how they can navigate the system to get the benefits that they have earned. Brian Reese wrote You Deserve It to change those statistics. You Deserve It is a comprehensive guide to hundreds of benefits available to veterans at the federal and state levels, including instructions on how to actually get those benefits. It also pinpoints assistance and discounts offered by nonprofit organizations and businesses.
