At the end of the day, I was satisified that I did all I could to assist every veteran.
National Service Officer III (Former Employee), VA Hospital Memphis, TNOctober 11, 2013
Pros: visiting nursing homes, rehab centers, and private hospitals to assist veterans.
My day started as a mornimg visit with all of the hospitalized veterans on the Spinal Cord Unit and those placed in other areas of the hospital. Managemennt was very supportive with resources to assist with accomplishing our mission. My co-workers were great! They also had passion for the veterans and would alert me of situations within the unit when – more... the veterans were afraid to speak up. The hardest part of the job was receiving a denial of benefits for the veterans that I assisted with filing a claim before the Department of Veterans Affairs. The most enjoyable part of the job was researching medical records and obtaining a medical opinion from physicians to support any claim that was granted benefits. I have a passion for assisting people in any capacity, as long as it is legal.

I was granted custody of my grand daughter and I had to resign. We have adjusted and I am ready to join the workforce. – less

This Veteran's Service Organization is dedicated to the mission of the company and ensures that all the members and non-members receive the benefits they are entitled too. This organization has the ability to change the course of Veteran's care, and is trying to be on the forefront of that Veterans health care movement.
