    While this site is for Florida, there are national service organizations also listed: http://www.vvof.org/vvoflink.htm Information is relevant to all era vets every where. A very encompassing page of info sources.

    Feel free to post your info sites here if it is not covered by this list of sites.

    I didn't see a link for www.hadit.com . They are a group of veterans who have Had It! with the VA. If you have a claim for service connection or other issues with the VA then this is a site with lots of info, links and a discussion board which is very active.

    I was wondering about a guy I used to know, he served in Nam, in the Navy. We were very close for a while. He just up and disappeared though, that was over 20 years ago, and I still think of him, I wish I knew how to find him, I have looked on websites, but never came up with anything. I would love to talk to him again. Any ideas on how to locate a navy guy? He was originally from Arizona, and would be about 60 years old now.

    Looking for old military friends?

    The Marines Corps originally had a website that is basically a "my space" type of forum where you can have your own area and use them to find each other. Both DH and I have been "found" by some old friends as well as looking up some folks.

    I knew that the USMC and the Navy had a site. Now it looks like the USAF has one and the Army's should be up soon.

    Hope this helps get some lost buddies back together....

    Hadit.com was instrumental in getting me the information I needed for my claim. My 14 year struggle with the VA ended with the help of Hadit.

    This VA site contains the manual that the VA employees must follow. As you look through it you will see the steps and procedures that they follow.

    Compensation and Pension
    Is the M21 Manual

    http://www.benefits.va.gov/WARMS/Site_Map.asp

    To get advice from the people that have gone through the VA process, I would HIGHLY suggest this site. When I was on there alot, it was mostly Viet Nam vets.

    http://vets.yuku.com/directory

    Thank You for serving, and I hope the sites help you as much as they did me.

    Welcome Home!

    PS; God Bless Chesty Puller..where ever you are!

    The ELKS in Easton, MD, have a member who collects clothes and things for Veterans, and he takes them himself - don't know which facility he takes them to, but I understand this is a very serious and heartfelt duty he has. I may check at any Elks around here and see if they have someone who does this. My husband is gone now but he was a VietNam vet. s.
