Serving your country as part of its illustrious military is one of the greatest honors to be had. While you will get the opportunity to help maintain peace and order, it can be a dangerous profession that puts you and your loved ones at risk. Even when you no longer serve in the military, you and whatever injuries (both physical and psychological) you bear could turn your civilian life upside down. Fortunately, the government looks out for its servicemen and women, and offers benefits to those who have long retired from service.
The Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) is responsible for providing recompense to veterans. The restitution can be incredibly helpful to those previous servicemen and women who have yet to settle down into normalcy, maintain a proper job, or who have difficulty balancing their finances, among other things.
