Just Discharged; Broke and trying to deal with the VA

PFC Clark, Louisiana

I just got an EPTS medical discharge from the Army (labial shoulder tear and cartilage damage) on the 15th, and have no money to my name. I'm trying to work through a claim with the VA, but at the moment I have no way to pay my bills for this month, since I don't have another job yet. Beyond this I need to find a way to continue to pay for school, but that's down the road. I need $540 by the end of the month or I won't have a place to stay even while working through the claims process. Anything would help immensely.

Need money for dental implants

Somebody , Portland

I was recently in a mountain bike accident where I suffered a serious concussion, a broken shoulder and fractured arm, and lost a several teeth from the impact. I've tried going through insurance but the only thing I qualify for or can get is limited basic at best ( they'll cover cleanings but nothing major). I don't know what to do or where to turn. I just want to be able to go back to eating solid foods, and to be able to smile and laugh and show emotions again. And not be ashamed or embarrassed about my appearance. Any help you can give me in helping to get my life back is greatly appreciated.

Need new work clothes as I am no longer the 1 in 3 person in overweight statistics

NotFatAny, Chicago,

I have recently lost over 65 pounds naturally with diet and exercise to stop being one of those gross overweight people you see out there, yet my new physique is being hidden by clothing that is way too big for my now slimmer frame. In fact, I look like a homeless person at work who is wearing a giant sack cloth as opposed to professional clothing. By feeling more confident about myself appearance wise, I believe I will get farther in my current position and then finally be able to afford my own new clothes, but for now, I need some help achieving this goal. Thank you very much for supporting a healthy lifestyle and future fiscal success in advance!
