10 Free Unknown Military Benefits

To serve one’s country demands a sacrifice for which no gift seems sufficient enough reward.

The men and women of our armed services do enjoy certain perks, however, most notably the GI Bill, The VA Home Loan Guarantee Program, and the Veteran Pension and Life Insurance Service. But the perks of service hardly end there. Many veterans and or active duty military personnel would be surprised to learn of the varied and substantial array of benefits, discounts, and non-profit organizations that exist to honor those who serve. The following is a sampling of some of the most interesting.

1. Free Security Alarms for military – clip_image002

Protect Our Troops is an  Organization that installs wireless, two-way voice security systems and provides 24hr monitoring for active duty service persons. With many soldiers stationed in areas requiring communication blackouts or reception issues (as in the mountainous highlands of Afghanistan) knowing their spouses, children and property back home is being monitored can be a great comfort.


2. Free Credit Repair Assistance –

www.vacreditsolutions.com Credit Reporting is perhaps the only American institution where you are guilty until proven clip_image004innocent. Statistics suggest that as much as 70% of all credit reports have errors on them, and as many as 25% contain errors serious enough that would preclude an otherwise qualified borrower from access to credit they deserve. Many veterans are unaware that the burden of contesting this information not only rests on them but that most companies advertising credit repair operate illegally. VA Credit Solutions is a free service designed to assist veterans and active duty military personnel with self-directed credit repair.


3. Free Concerts & Sporting Events –

  2. Hi, I just received 70% of my benefits. I wanted to know about many of the benefits available for this %?
    My American Legion rep tells me I am entitled to $5.00 car tags. I also would like to know if there
    are any discounted county taxes on home ownership that I can receive. Need some basic info as to
    what this percentage can save me. Also I am collecting SS, (over 65), can I still get SS disability added
    to this? Thank you so much. Barbara
