I cannot live my life based on assumptions. This principle holds true in both my personal life and professional life. Veterans and their families have been known to assume that the Walsh County Veterans Service Office knows about them because the VA told them. I want to let as many people as I can know that this county office only knows what you tell it. Unless you are actively working with me, there is a lot of which I am not aware. When dealing with doctors and visiting the VA Clinic or Hospital, the Veterans Health Administration, no one knows about those appointments but you. Medical records are still one of those items that are never re- leased without proper documentation. In regards to the benefits side, the Veterans Benefits Administration, when filing for compensation or pension, if you decide to go it alone, this office is not actively aware that you filed a claim unless you tell me. It is Walsh County highly recommended to begin the benefits process with a Service Officer.

Do you assume that everyone in your Legion Post or community group that are Veterans have looked into all their options from the VAor the state? That would be an unfortunate assumption as it stops the conversation we should all still be having. Have you checked out your possible benefits yet? Have you assumed you don't qualify?
