After exiting the military, I suffered from health problems. I turned to the Department of Veterans Affairs for their support. Not only was I unsuccessful but the process was overbearing and stressful. Poverty crept into my life. I continued to feel sadness, hopelessness, and worry for 8 years or more until I heard about the law firm of Goodman Allen Donnelly who supports their veterans. I am grateful for Nancy Foti, Esquire, my super heroine of an angel who worked diligently and tenaciously on my military claim along with her associates! As a result, I was granted the military service connection that I deserved. Now I am relieved from failure, disappointment and despair! Now my tears are from joy!
