VETERAN BENEFITS & ASSISTANCE

Veteran Benefits & Assistance

Originally founded in 1899 as the American Veterans of Foreign Service, the Veterans of Foreign Wars continues to be a voice for returning and currently deployed service members and their families. The Veterans of Foreign Wars is dedicated to supporting those who sacrifice so much for this country, veterans, service members in the US Armed Forces, and their families.
 
Certified Advocates

Throughout the State of Oklahoma and at the VA Regional Office in Muskogee, VFW Service Officers that are Accredited and Certified by the VA fight for the rights of our Nations veterans on a daily basis.  These highly trained professionals, specializing in all programs administered by the VA stand ready and willing to provide whatever assistance is required!  These services are available at no cost to veterans or their dependents! Nor does one have to be a member of the VFW to receive our services.
 
From a simple request of a discharge document to a case with complicated issues that may require extensive medical and Court Cases research, we will exhaust all means to obtain a favorable decision.  In the event a claim is denied we will represent the case through the appellate process to the Board of Veterans Appeals (VBA) and if not successful to the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (CAVC) if warranted.
