As a veteran I have spent the last 22 years not fully knowing what VA benefits I am entitled to. To be honest with you the word entitlment has been a word that I have struggled with for several years. I have let my own ignorance, pride and ego stand in the way of fully understanding and taking advantage of these VA benefits that I am entitled to. That is until now. I recently had the opportunity to attend an orientation that was conducted by Mr. Albert Renteria at the new Southwest Veterans' Business Resource Center in Perris California. After speaking with Mr. Renteria it was clear that most veterans like myself face the same three (3) obstacles. Mr. Renteria explained to me that the VA benefits I am entitled to as a veteran are a return of investment for the time I spent serving my country.
In closing, I look forward to climbing the 14 level reintegration ladder that SWVBRC offers. If you are a veteran I encourage you to register and get informed today. You owe it to yourself, your family and your community.
