As this book is being written, the typical VA claim for compensation is taking just under 200 days to complete. That is way too long to wait to get help from the government you defended. Hopefully this book will help you get through the process much quicker, and not get phone calls and letters from the VA letting you know you didn’t complete your claim correctly
Bloomington, IN (Vocus) September 23, 2010
Both having previously worked at the Veterans Administration regional offices, authors K. David Monahan and Alex Connolly have come across literally thousands of veterans claims and complaints in their ten years of VA experience. In their attempt to help veterans make a successful claim with less hassle, they collaborate to write a how-to book titled Battle for Veterans’ Benefits, made available through Xlibris.
Leaving loved ones to serve in the Armed Forces is enduring; attempting to receive compensation for inquiries incurred during military service need not be another hell to endure. This book, interjected with humor, is for any veteran of any of the U.S Armed Forces during WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, Grenada, Bosnia, Gulf War from any era, who wishes to file a claim for benefits through the VA. While this book does not guarantee a monetary payment, it does provide answers on how to submit a successful claim.

A book written by and for Veterans, Battle for Veterans’ Benefits offers real advice from others, who have been down this road themselves. According to the authors, this will become one of the most important books the Veterans will ever read because they deserve more than just “thanks” for their service; they also deserve peace of mind.

About the Authors
K. David Monahan was born in Miami, Florida and moved to Fairbanks, Alaska for ten months and then moved to Los Angeles, California at the age of nine. He lived there until graduating from University High School and joining the United States Air Force. He totalled over 4000 flying hours on AWACS and Special Operations Aircraft.
Alex Connolly is a proud United States Air Force veteran, husband, father and son. Born and raised in the Midwest, he is the oldest of nine children. He has traveled extensively from one end of this country to the next with his family at his side. Currently residing with his wife in Denver, CO, his hobbies include reading, writing, photography, and expanding his skills and knowledge in these areas.
Both met when they worked at the VA as Veterans Service Representatives. During training, they immediately realized that the VA does not publish vital information for veterans which causes most claims to be delayed. Monahan approached Connolly one day and suggested authoring a “how to” book for all veterans to particularly include all information regarding the vital veteran evidence needed for a completed claim. That is when Battle for Veterans’ Benefits was born.
