United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is directly responsible for providing support and benefits to those who have served the country through military service. The VA offers medical support, job training and even college tuition benefits for service members who have reentered civilian society.

There are also disability and medical benefits available for individuals who have serious health issues stemming from their service. When determining what kind of benefits a specific veteran can receive, the VA will typically perform a lengthy medical evaluation that culminates in a report establishing that veteran’s specific disability rating.
