Paul Tobin, President of United Spinal Association and VetsFirst's Chief Executive Officer states, "On this Veterans Day it is only fitting that as we honor the brave men and women who have served our country so valiantly, we unveil a user-friendly, interactive way for veterans to receive practical and expert advice on any veterans-related issue, including the transition from military service member to civilian status, VA and other federal benefits and programs, health care services and eligibility requirements."

Tobin added, "Through our Ask VetsFirst Help Center feature, veterans and their family members can get quick answers to questions about their VA claims and appeals, and ask for assistance in handling them."

VetsFirst.org also includes a listing of VetsFirst's national veterans service officers, an online library with "Knowledge Books", fact sheets and self-help guides, such as the "Active Duty Personnel Pre-separation Guide" and the "Self-help Guide for Veterans with Spinal Cord Injuries and Disorders".
