Mission to Help the Vets – Jane Babcock pt 2

A Mission to Help the Vets

Jane Babcock pt 2

These last few years, there has been an increase awareness about the terrible care our military veterans have received.

Thank God for the efforts President Trump put into this area that did show some promising improvements and results. Amen!

But there is still a long way, a very long way, to go.

Our vets, their spouses and their families are hurting. They are suffering. And when they try to navigate the myriad mazes that consist in our government, they get lost and give up. Or they fall through the cracks and start over again. And again. And again.

But, all hope is not lost. There is a team of volunteers out there that take this very, very seriously. Our guest today has formed a grass roots mission, “National Promises Made But Not Kept by the VA.”

Jane Babcock has been a volunteer for over 12 years, serving the veterans in her state of Wisconsin, but also helping others nationwide! Praise God.

Through her volunteer training and guidance, with one-on-one virtual calls, live and podcast interviews, in person group and virtual classes, Jane has been on the forefront of helping veterans navigate the mazes of bureaucracy, especially inside the VA. Amen!

Her mission is to educate every veteran, their families, and their widow(or)s on the benefits which the VA seems happy to keep secret.

Today is part two of an amazing three part interview!

You published a LinkedIn article that discusses just a few of the cases in which you intervened. One of the stories was about a Marine with over 25 years of service and fully qualified for retirement, but they were going to put him on Retired Reserve due to surgeries prior to his retirement date. Can you briefly explain that situation for us and how you intervened and what the result was?

You are also able to help those Marines that were stationed at or working at Camp Lejuune, North Carolina from the 1950’s to 1980’s. Explain what that is all about and how people that worked there during that time could be impacted?

This just is not for the older vets out there. I’ve seen news reports of how those who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan and that area were affected by pit burns. Can you share a little bit about those benefits that vets could be entitled to?

Share with some of things the VA has available for caregivers of these veterans…

What about the condition of some of the VA Nursing Homes we’ve seen on TV? Have they gotten better since those news reports?

You assist veterans with applying to the VA for these and other benefits. Why shouldn’t these vets apply on their own? What’s the benefit of using someone like you?

What about funeral benefits? Do VA Counselors also help with those?

If you want to get in touch with your local VA benefits educator, look them up. Find a contact number. Email Jane and tell here where you are located and she can probably refer you to someone or maybe email you the info you need to get started. Amen!

This is something YOU need to take control of. Amen!

I urge you, if you are a veteran or a family member of a veteran or are just aware of a situation involving a veteran, please get in touch with Jane or a local representative and get the help that is due to the veterans. Amen!
