Thank you for your question and I apologize for the Site's automatic response system. It is confusing at best. The Experts don't work for the Site (we're Users like you) so, unfortunately, we don't have a say in how they introduced a customer to the Site. In any event, I am a live person and a Military Expert. Can you tell me what Veterans benefits your friend wants to use or needs? I assume he is a retiree and receiving retired pay from DFAS since he served 22 years, correct?
