The attached document has been provided to IPT by Brad Schaffer, our member BSchaffer. He will be the moderator of this Veteran's Forum and available to answer questions about the VA Administration's benefits and services to our veteran inmates and those paroling. The VA offers many wonderful benefits for veteran's, even while incarcerated.
