Everyone Knows Someone – I need Some Help

Bobblehead DollIf you are a regular reader, you know, I am a disabled veteran.  I served in the US Army and the US Navy.  I hate asking for help, but I am in a pickle and need some guidance on resources, so please consider who you know as you read this.  If you prefer to contact me directly, feel free to email me using msalis1@msn.com.

      1. I am trying to put in an Endless Pool. I can pay for the pool; I have the contractor, what I need is a financing solution. I can refinance and roll the complete project into my home mortgage.  The VA has demanded I lose 7% of my body mass before considering even discussing my spinal and neurological problems with me.
            • The pool project also includes a two-car garage for my house, which improves the home value.
            • The pool project includes lawn and curb appeal upgrades, things that my home has not witnessed in several owners, and handicap accessibility upgrades.
            • Several physical therapists have recommended pool therapy, which the VA has previously sent me, but the VA will no longer send me.
      2. Does anyone know a hungry lawyer? The Phoenix VA Police injured me.  Yesterday, the first X-rays of my spine were taken since the 07 and 10 December incidents at the VAMC in Phoenix; my L-Spine now has two curves, one front to back, which is normal, and one to the decidedly abnormal, left!
            • While in Phoenix, I tried to find a lawyer, but the lawyers who could handle the Federal VA were astronomical and wanted their funds upfront.
            • I am not averse to paying for services rendered, but I cannot afford almost $20 grand in legal fees upfront.
            • If not a lawyer, does anyone know how to file a tort claim against the VA?

Broken RobotI have tried multiple times, now in multiple states, to get the elected officials to take up my case, all to no avail.  Regular readers will have seen the articles explaining my efforts.  Frankly, I am at a loss about what to do next or where to turn, so options, ideas, and possibilities are greatly appreciated.  I have contacted the veteran service organizations, both the ones I am a member of and those I am not a member of, and they are only interested in getting me signed up for care at the VA.  Well, not all of them.

Download wounded warrior project transparent logo png - Free PNG Images | TOPpngThe Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) continues to advocate and does a lot of good in the community, and I am especially grateful for their help and support.  As a special shout out, if the Wounded Warriors come around asking for help raising funds, please consider giving, this group is doing a lot to help veterans, and I am proud to be affiliated with them!  As the new kids on the block, the WWP is making a definite name for themselves as a resource for jobs, increasing job skills, activities, family support, and a LOT more!  Like I said, a special shout out, for they have gone out of their way to try and help, and I appreciate their time and assistance.

Working DollarFor the entrepreneurs out there, I know a solid investment opportunity.  Veterans need special equipment, like pools, exercise equipment, etc., for weight loss, weight management, and health improvement.  Generally, smaller communities cannot support gym memberships, exercise pools, and so forth, but the veterans can pay for the tools with suitable financing options.  Here is the business idea, set up a way to finance these things and make yourself some good money in the process.

Anyway, if you know someone and would not mind dropping me a referral, please lend a hand.  I need two solutions as soon as possible.  All assistance is greatly appreciated; even if all you can do is read this post and send good vibes my way, it is greatly appreciated.  Thank you for your time!
