I recently met a Veteran outside of the office, and the
conversation naturally turned back to what we do for a living. (For
the record, defending the freedom of millions of Americans really
is a lot cooler than blog writing and Tweeting.) When...
One thing I try to do when talking to all of our new clients is to
refrain from getting emotional. This isn’t always easy. It is
especially difficult when A Veteran tells me that someone gave them
false information. One of these situations occurred a few months

We are excited to announce that our Veteran’s charity event, the
Walk4Vets, will return in 2014! Started by Jan Dils in 2011, the
Walk4Vets is an annual event held in the Mid-Ohio Valley that
benefits local Veterans Organizations. After a one year hiatus, the

if it was on everyone’s mind, but then Kim Kardashian gave birth to
a child she named after a compass,...
I’m probably the next to last person who should be writing a blog

at friendship than I am.) I tend to hold people to high standards,
and this means I have to go to movies by myself a lot. However,
from my experience working with VA...

VA disability compensation. It’s vast, complicated, and I have to
keep up to date with other important things like what Jennifer
Lawrence is up to these days. However, I do know quite a bit. I’m
also observant. For instance, when I...
