A New Way to File a Claim



Online Tools, Standardized Forms, and More

Effective March 24th, 2015, VA is implementing improvements to make it easier for you to apply for benefits.
 
Online application tools, standardized forms, and a new intent to file process will create faster and more accurate decisions on your claims and appeals.

What does it all mean?

As part of the VA’s full-scale transformation in 2015, these new changes will:
  • Streamline the benefits process, making it faster and easier
  • Use standardized forms to file disability claims and compensation appeals
  • Establish a new intent to file a claim process

11-16 Apr 2015 - Western Sky Aviation Fly-in/Drive-in

My name is Rebecca Edwards and I am a museum representative at Western Sky Aviation Warbird Museum in St. George, Utah. I am contacting you to let you know of the upcoming events the museum has scheduled for this Spring that the veterans of Southern Utah and their respective organizations maybe interested in attending and perhaps participating in.

I will explain a little about the events and have also attached flyers for more information.

The first event is a Fly-in/Drive-in Breakfast on April 11, 2015. The breakfast will be at the museum located at 4196 South Airport Parkway, St. George, Utah. The museum is donating 50% of the net proceeds to the Utah Honor Flight Organization to help send Utah's

WWII Veterans to their memorial in Washington, D.C. Everyone is invited to attend.

The next event will be our Armed Forces Celebration May 15 & 16, 2015. The museum wishes to celebrate and honor all those who have served or are currently serving in our Armed Forces. We kick off the celebration with a WWII style Hangar Dance on Friday, May 15, 2015 from 7 pm - 11 pm. Tickets are required for this event. Please call me (Rebecca Edwards)  at (435) 229-4985 for a veterans discount on ticket price.

The following morning on Saturday May 16, 2015 from 10 am - 4 pm the museum will have a Wings & Wheels event. This event is free to the public. I would like to offer up booth space free of charge to any Veteran Organization that would like to participate in this event. Please see the attached flyer for more about this event. Last year we had approximately 1,500 people in attendance to our Wings & Wheels and 230 to our Hangar Dance. This year we are expecting over 2,000 to attend our Armed Forces Celebration Weekend. We hope to see you there.

Feel free to contact me if your organization would like to participate in this event or if you have any questions.
