“Getting your benefits is about more than money. Tuition benefits help veterans find a career that gives them purpose. Home loan benefits help provide a more stable environment for their families. Healthcare benefits improve their physical and psychological health and well-being.” — Brian Reese

Eight out of 10 veterans are not receiving the benefits they deserve by law. Less than 25 percent (or 4.9 million) of veterans alive today receive disability benefits by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Brian Reese wrote You Deserve It to change those statistics.

You Deserve It is a comprehensive guide to hundreds of benefits available to veterans at the federal and state levels, including instructions on how to actually get those benefits. It also pinpoints assistance and discounts offered by nonprofit organizations and businesses.

“Brian Reese helped me increase my VA disability benefits from 70% to 100%. I also got relief for $40,000 worth of student loan debt and I secured FREE medical care for my entire family using CHAMPVA. On top of all that, I got Chapter 35VA Education Benefits for my two children. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!” –Michael Ware, USA Disabled Veteran

“After leaving the Navy, I had ZERO help with my benefits and was stuck at 0% for 6 years. After connecting with Brian Reese, he taught me how to get the VA benefits that I deserved by law. I went from 0% to 100% P&T and had over $175,000 of student loan debt erased. This man saved my life…GET THIS BOOK!” –Terrell Murrell, USN Disabled Veteran
