Ocala, Florida (PressExposure) February 15, 2010 -- For many, returning from war is not the heart-felt homecoming; it's a bitter snap back to reality.
There are approximately 1.5 million U.S. veterans who went without any form of health insurance in 2008, according to a 2009 Harvard Medical School study. Of those, an estimated 2,266 suffered preventable deaths due to the lack of health care.
Additionally, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs found that each night 131,000 of those who have served in the military spend the evening homeless -- with people from every generation and war represented in the statistic.
With distressing realities like these, the importance of making sure every veteran has a clear understanding of the benefits available is crucial -- and at Atlantic Publishing we have a book for that very purpose.
Returning from the War on Terrorism: What Every Veteran Needs to Know to Retrieve Your Maximum Benefits is designed to be like a door to a wealth of veterans' benefits information located in a single source. The informative book is broken down by various chapters, each covering critical information about veterans' benefits programs and entitlements, such as the GI Bill, details of VA loans, disability compensation, VA hospitals and facilities, the GI Bill Apprenticeship Program, Veterans' life insurance and pension programs as well as the various benefits available after service dealing with employment, education, and training programs.
"There are billions of dollars in aid available, waiting to be claimed, but the problem is finding and properly applying for these programs," Lieutenant Commander Bruce Brown, a veteran and award-winning author, writes in the book.
This book is available for review as a hard copy or PDF, excerpting, resale, and per inquiry advertising. High-resolution images are also on hand upon request.
