Resources for Veterans

Veterans Day on November 11 reminds us of the importance of the service and dedication of the many veterans who have fought to defend our country.  Veterans and those who work to assist veterans can find helpful information on a number of websites.   The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs provides information on benefits and services, health and well-being, and burials and memorials for veterans.  In Arizona, both the Phoenix VA Health Care System and the Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services contain useful links to resources for veterans available in our community.  The National Veterans Legal Services Program is a non-profit, charitable organization that works for veterans’ rights and conducts an advocate training program.   This organization compiles the Veterans Benefits Manual which is a “desk reference and issue-oriented guide for veterans’ service organization representatives, state and county veterans’ service officers, attorneys, paralegals, and other advocates representing veterans and their dependents before the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and reviewing courts.”  You can access a copy of this Manual in the Superior Court Law Library.
