LITERALLY MILLIONS OF VETERANS ARE SUFFERING NEEDLESSLY DUE TO A LACK OF KNOWLEDGE!

4.7 MILLION SENIORS live below the poverty line, having to CHOOSE BETWEEN MEDICINE, FOOD, AND HEAT, WHO MAY NOT HAVE TO. They just don’t know that they may qualify for an average of $900 per month in benefits from the VA, and how to get them.

MORE VETERANS DIE OF SUICIDE THAN COMBAT, UP TO 28 A DAY. Millions who volunteered to risk their lives to protect ours and our way of life, suffer needlessly because they aren’t aware of the help that is available for 80+ issues they and their families grapple with, and how to get that help.

We are Know A Vet? (KAV), an IRS approved (82-1566302), FREE service to veterans and our families, designed to Attract, Inform and Connect whose who volunteered to risk their lives to protect ours and our way of life. We provide information and personal assistance, to aid in learning of 80+ issues we have earned help for, and how to get that help, through government and/or community resources, for our best possible life after service.

Please, help us get millions of seniors out of poverty and save countless marriages, destroyed by Vets returning after 3, 4 or 5 deployments with PTSD and a myriad of other issues that make many of us anti-social, unable to hang on to a job, riddled with constant nightmares, flashbacks and more.

Because "No one comes home from war 'alive’.

KAV, a FREE, Confidential service to veterans, their families and caregivers, is in need of A Social Networking professional to help us spread the word to vets, their families, coworkers, fellow club members and caregivers, of all the services available to help them to their best life.

We are creating 100 articles of importance to those who have risked their lives for ours and our way of life. These topics cover medical, financial, educational, surviving spouse, transitioning to civilian life, and other issues that we need to update our vets on.

It should only take between 2 to 4 hours per week, and your commitment is to only one week at a time.

Your topics will coincide with the weekly newsletters.

Please get in touch with Neil@KnowAVet.org
