4.5. Reaching Out to Veterans Service Organizations

Veterans service organizations (VSOs) provide a wide range of free services for veterans and their dependents.  While a "chartered[1]" VSO can provide assistance with benefits and VA claims, other services may include advocacy, career counseling, mentorship, temporary financial assistance, family support networks, advice on medical issues and much, much more.  

VetJobs provides an excellent list of service organizations.

[1] A VSO that is "chartered" means it is recognized or approved by the VA Secretary to advocate for you and represent you in VA claims.
