    Nancy Nash, the wife of PGE retiree and veteran Douglas Nash, has set up Web Site www.howtoassemblevaclaims.com, which is a guide to help veterans and/or their dependents that need to file claims or appeals with the VA. This site gives you a step-by-step guide on "how to." Nancy says it's a site that speaks for itself. It shows you how to fine tune your claim or appeal.  It lets you know if you need a lawyer, and if one is needed, it will save you money because you won't have to pay anyone to put your paperwork together for you, since this site shows you what is needed and how to do it. Nancy feels that if this site helps one additional person, it was worth all of her hard work. (A BIG thank you to Nancy for all of her "leg work" doing all the research and getting this Web site set up.)
