National Veteran's Benefit Links

     The following information is provided as useful information for veterans. You do not have to be a member of The American Legion to use these benefits. The only general rule is that, at a minimum, a general or honorable discharge is required. Some of the links may apply to active duty personnel.
    The information in Table I was provided to me by Echo, the monthly news letter of the USS Harold J. Ellison (DD-864) Association. The editors of this newsletter are Mike Raaker and Ken Moore. The original data was provided to Echo by Phillip Fuller.
    All 3 tables contain a column named Index. Verifying all of the links in the tables is a task larger that we were able to do. If you find a "broken link", please report the Index number to Webmaster@americanLegionPost48Chesnee.Com. If you discover other useful sources of information for veterans, please forward them to the Webmaster for inclusion in the tables. You should be able to "click" on the entry in the Link column and go to that web site.
