Thanks.

The "knol" is a work in progress, updated (almost) daily and seems to be helping veterans to help themselves.

At the VBA, knowledge=power.

Lawyers or other DVA experts are invited to participate as coauthors. Contact me directly with an idea or an article and I'll get it posted.

Jim,

This sounds like a great project... you're exactly right that our Veterans (and their families) need as much help as possible learning to navigate the VA. Thanks for taking this step to help all of our warrior heroes!!!
