I would like to thank this wonderful organization for assisting me with my PTSD claim. Before I found VSG, my claim kept getting denied over and over again.... and on the first attempt VSG submitted my paperwork, I received a disability rating of 50%!! Bob and Jim are knowledgeable and are current on all the VA changes and they make it their priority to assist veterans like me. I highly recommend VSG.

What a blessing Bob and his staff were to me, as they took over navigating the VA phone trees and provided resources to help me move forward with my mother's pension. Their sensitivity to my concerns made such a difference. I am indebted to them for their caring support. Thank you so much for what you do. VSG !!

Comment VSG from - Tommie G. Skipper
Support and help. June 2017
I finally received a 60% disability for my service with the Marine Corps
in Vietnam. I tried for years to get this taken care of before I found that
there was a support group for veterans. I got in touch with Bob and Jim
who guided me, supported me and helped me take the correct steps through the confusing system that is known as The Veterans Administration. I cannot express
my gratitude enough. Thank you so very much.
Sincerely. T.G. Skipper
