Hello...I'm Jim Strickland. That's me above, at my VA clinic in Savannah, Georgia. I publish the VAWatchdog. The other fellow above is Larry Scott. He founded the VAWatchdog in 2005. Larry passed away some years ago from a non-service connected illness.
Crown Memorial Centers - Larry Scott About me: I was born in a Navy hospital, the son of a marine who went on to 20 years in his beloved USMC Old Corps and E-9 rank at age 36. I entered the Army from Florida in 1967 knowing Vietnam was my next stop. We can always depend on surprises from our military so I was trained as an operating room technician and sent to the 98th General Hospital in Germany where I served until June of 1970. I used my 91D20 skills to open a career for myself in civilian health care. I retired in the early 2000s due to service connected conditions...old seemingly minor injuries sustained in a training event got much worse with age and I was forced to take the TDIU benefit and I left the work I enjoyed. Like so many vets out of work, I looked for things to do and met Larry Scott as he was developing the VAWatchdog Dot Org. Larry was a good friend and mentor and when he became terminally ill I promised I'd carry on the VAWatchdog Dot Org in his memory. And here we are. I hope you enjoy what you see here and that you find some value as you research the benefits you earned. Those benefits aren't charity and they aren't a handout...we earn those benefits and if obtaining them takes a bit more effort, so be it. We're here to help you along your journey.
Questions and comments are welcomed and always answered promptly. /s/ Jim <email@example.com>
