THE AMERICAN VETERANS’ AND SERVICEMEMBERS’ SURVIVAL GUIDE

[link to www.veteransforamerica.org]

>>The new Survival Guide is a follow-up to the 1985 national bestseller, The Viet Vet Survival Guide. Just as the earlier book was a must-read for Vietnam veterans, the new book will prove an invaluable resource for the 1.7 million servicemembers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, the 24 million veterans of past conflicts, and the families of all our troops and veterans. Unlike the earlier guide, the new Survival Guide is free.

The new book is as much a roadmap as a reference manual, detailing the benefits, assistance and resources available as well as the step-by-step directions for navigating the bureaucracies that serve our troops and veterans. The new Survival Guide contains 28 chapters, including 17 for veterans and their families and 11 for active-duty servicemembers, National Guard members and reservists, and their families. From legal to health services, job assistance to women’s issues, the new Survival Guide is designed to meet everyone’s needs.

What you will find in the new Survival Guide includes:

–Chapter 3, “Service-Connected Compensation,” which provides indispensable guidance for those suffering from PTSD and other psychological wounds and have questions or concerns about what they’re owed by the military.

–Chapter 11, “Employment, Self-Employment and the Small-Business Administration,” covers the issues for those veterans looking to establish a business or get a job.

–Chapter 20, “Advice for Families and Caregivers of Wounded Servicemembers and Veterans,” is a vital resource to family members and the wider community about how to better take care, and honor, our veterans and wounded troops. It deals with issues including how to advocate effectively on behalf of the injured and how to deal with hospitals, doctors, and medical staff. It also emphasizes how stressful the role of caregiver can be and the importance of dealing with the caregiver’s own physical and emotional needs.

With far more women in the ranks than ever before, the new Survival Guide deals head-on with the problems of sexual discrimination, harassment and assault as well as discrimination. The chapter for women in the military details how to report harassment and other problems. It also helps military families deal with the problems that occur with the deployment of one or both parents.

This is only a fraction of the information and resources inside The American Veterans and Servicemembers Survival Guide.<<
