Free College Tutoring for Veterans and Service Members

0

Hey! I run a program called Army Smart that provides free college-level tutoring for veterans and service members in essentially any subject, but we mainly teach Mathematics, Stats, Science, and Engineering. We are a team of 45 active duty and veteran tutors and have tutored over 400 students, most from r/veterans and r/VeteransBenefits

I am a recently separated (Jan1 2022) Army veteran so I understand how hard it is to take college classes while you are in the military or after you transition out.

If you need help in any college-level class please DM me or contact me through my website, it is completely free.

Armysmart.org

I used to post here pretty frequently so I'm sure some of you have seen my posts here before, I deployed last year so I had to take a break for a little while.

Where oh where have my records gone

0

V A just sent a letter telling me my claim for Agent Orange was presumptive and all they need are my service records for that time. Problem is that my VSO has looked for them and can't find any such thing. As far as my 214 goes, I was drafted in 70 and out in 72 honorably. How do I find my duty assignments.

TBI buddy letter

0

I didn’t know concussions were considered as a TBI but it makes sense, I believe I had 2 of them while I was in service. One of them I broke my teeth and had to go to dental. That is the only medical documentation I have. Is it possible to get them service connected?

One I fell on a helicopter and hit the back of my head off the metal floor.

Thanks!

W2 Question

0

Hi everyone,

I separated last August and started my civilian career in October. My new job just delivered my W2 but I'm confused as to how I obtain a W2 for the last 9 months of my Army career, or if that's even the expectation. MyPay isn't very helpful. Looking for some advice, thanks.

How likely am I to get approved for a mortgage loan using my VA home loan? High credit score, low income.

0

Pretty much the title. My score‘a at 780, I rate 30% disability, and have about $22k in assets which include a savings account and TSP. However, I’m only working part time right now ( I’m a full time student on the GI Bill but sadly, BAH doesn’t count as income). I’m trying to borrow $120k. Any likelihood I’ll get approved?

Anyone have any luck with getting BAH for an apprenticeship?

0

I’m currently in the HBI internship for Carpentry & Electrical, and it has been mentioned by one of the other students that you can receive BAH while in an apprenticeship once you separate. No one in the program knows who you have to reach out to though to verify the apprenticeship, nor does anyone know who to contact. I had contacted the VA office here on Ft. Hood, but the individual I spoke with didn’t know that this program even existed. Anyone have experience, what organization did you need to go through to get your apprenticeship verified?

How long should it take for your VR&E counselor to reasonably get back to you?

0

My relationship with my counselor is strictly through email. Sometimes it takes her 1-3 weeks to get back to me. And that’s only because I send her follow up emails. I’m just sick of having questions and having to wait nearly a month to get a response. I’m sick of sending follow-up emails too. I feel like I’m pestering her.

Always cold.

0

I spent a year in Iraq and about a month in Kuwait back in 08. We were off the FOB more then on it. I'm always cold. If I'm slightly chilled then I'm uncomfortable. I prefer to be warm or even hot. Do you guys have this issue?

Ballpark cost for “full body scan”

0

I want to help a veteran I know who has several physical medical complaints which are not service connected. Is there a series of medical “tests/scans/etc” someone could get for a “complete” physical health assessment? If so, what are they and what are the average ballpark US cash costs (uninsured) of said “tests”? Thanks for any insights.
