Special Notes: Veterans will need Form DD214 before any veteran’s assistance can be given. All questions related to benefits should be directed to Brian Hult at the Bonner County Veterans Office (see below).
The only time this would come into play is if Howard was unable to help the Vet and needed additional help that we might be able to provide. In addition check the following: http://thewiseguideonline.com/category/veterans/
