Hello this is Bruce and I wanted to do a video about filing a claim for veteran disability and this is specifically for other vets out there other veterans out there who were in the military and who are thinking about it the reason I want to do this video is because I was actually very ignorant about this process and I didn't even think that something like this was was out there for to support someone like me and if you're in the same situation then then this is this videos for you okay so first off let me give you some context about me so that you can maybe see if you're in the same situation same boat as me so I was actually in the military for about nine years I was in the Air Force and I was in a pretty hardcore job and contracted contrary to popular belief military the Air Force does have some pretty hard jobs and I was in one of them I was the security forces at the time it's called security police and it was very brutal it's very thankless job and when I was in we trained with the army the Marines the Navy it was very mixed and and the training was amazed and very brutal and very really physical and a lighter transition into cross-trained is what we call it into another job of communications and actually in that job actually went to war zone so it wasn't even though the job was easier I like calm better than being a police officer and a security guard it was I went through more brutal stuff as in communications so that being said ten years later I get out of the military or ten years later I'm out of the military and I get educated on the fact that the government will actually help someone like me a service vet who has some issues on the outside and I just didn't know any better until recently so that's that's my story that's you know in a nutshell that's what happened and if you're in the same boat I just want you to know that it doesn't matter how long you've been out if you have service-related injuries and you can still you have it you have a possibility and even if you feel like you're like I don't know if I can get this I don't know if I can get compensation for my disabilities or you know it doesn't hurt to actually just file for it you know if you have any ill know if you have disabilities so or something is affecting your job or your family okay so now that that's all out of the way who I am and who am I talking I'm talking to my first step on this was to go to what's called a BSL office that's a veteran service organization or veteran's service office and these are state sponsored organizations meaning the state government actually sponsors them so if you want to find a VSO near you all you do is you type in this your state name VSO and veteran and you can you'll you'll find it they have them in California okay I think it's called Cal vets they have an inherent Colorado all they have in Menorca so they have all 50 states have a vesl you know you might have to drive somewhere to go to it but I highly highly recommend it because...
