OUR GOAL IS TO KEEP THE 6500 RHODE ISLAND GULF VETERANS INFORMED ON ALL ISSSUES RELATED TO THE GULF WAR.

What We Do

WE ARE ADVOCATES FOR THE GULF VETERANS NEEDS. WE CAN ASSIST A VETERAN IN PREPARING A CLAIM, APPEALING A CLAIM, AND ANY OTHER MATTER HE/SHE NEEDS ASSSITANCE WITH A CLAIM. IN ADDITION, WE HAVE AN ADVOCATE WHO IS AN ATTORNEY. HE IS A MEMBER OF NATONAL ORGANIZATIONS OF VETERAN'S ADVOCATES. HE WILL ASSIST A VETERAN WITH HIS/HER CLAIM AT NO CHARGE. IF THE VETERAN HAS TO APPEAL A CLAIM, HE WILL ALSO DO THIS FOR A FEE ALLOWED BY LAW. IT DOES NOT COST THE VETERAN ANY MONEY UNLESS THE CLAIM IS APPROVED. WE ALSO ASSIST GULF VETERANS WITH ANY OTHER VETERAN ISSUE. WE CAN GIVE HIM CONTACTS OF VARIOUS ORGANIZATIONS WHO PROVIDE SERVICES FOR VETERANS. IN ADDITION, IF A VETERAN IS HAVING A PROBLEM GETTING TREATMENT FOR HIS OR HER ILLNESS, WE HAVE CONTACTS IN THE FEDERAL AND STATE LEVEL TO ADDRESS THE VETERNS CONCERN.
