Vet in Need of assistance in Dallas/Plano

A family member of mine got a message from a long time friend that is reaching out for some assistance.

Is there anyone in that region that can point me in the correct direction?

I'm looking for a VA Advocate in that area or a nudge in the correct direction

Please PM me for details, I don't want to put too much of this Vet's information on the open forum.

Thanks

The VFW offers assistance to vets regardless of whether they are members. The other service organizations do as well.

https://www.vfw.org/assistance/va-cl...ation-benefits

Look on the right side of the page to choose TX.

I'm really only familiar with the VFW, but I'm sure others will chime in with info from other organizations. Let me know what I can help with.

Contact the Plano VFW...

There's a member of the Post that I believe works for the aforementioned Veterans Affairs office. Also the Plano American Legion would be a good contact point.
