David, you know I have been struggling with my VA claim and disabilities since 1970. I have had nothing but trouble with getting compensation for my issues related to the Vietnam war. Thank your telling me and my wife not to give up. I refused to deal with the denial in the claim 2 years ago and many years before then. You told us not to give up. Finally with your help. I have finally been compensated. My wife and I are so happy for you taking all the time with us that you did. You made a difference. I never thought this day would happen. My wife is sending this letter for me. We will see you soon to donate to DLW. Thanks. – Elliott Johnson

I want to thank you for the wonderful luncheon you had on December 21, 2011. Even though it rained, I believe the turn out was great. Look forward to next year. – Jennifer

Thank you DLW Veteran Outreach Center for helping me retrieve my military records and assistance employment. Finally, an organization that did not give me the ‘run around’, and they’re not done yet. I encourage all veterans to go by and talk to real veterans that sincerely care about you. Again, thank you to DLW Veteran Center and its team of volunteers, you should be proud of your work. I am. Sincerely, Benjamin Staley

I would like to thank the DLW Veteran Outreach Center in helping me with extensive searches for my veteran benefits and employment rehabilitation. In addition, I would like to thank the DLW Veteran Outreach Center for providing me therapeutic counseling in ways of transitioning back into the work field and conquering homelessness. Again, thank you for all that your organization had done for me and for all things that are about to do for me. Sincerely, Denise R. Valentine Dave and his staff have been very helpful to me in giving me job referrals and helping me end my homelessness. I am very thankful and feel blessed that I discovered them and for all the help I have received from them. – Denise

I am a Navy veteran of the Viet Nam War era. For years I have been drifting about aimlessly, fighting my demons from my experiences of that era. I have lived in shelters, have been homeless, and suffered through a great deal of duress. One day, out of curiosity, I stopped by the offices of DLW Veterans Outreach Center. That has turned out to be the best of my recent decisions. I have been given direction from the staff there that is greatly helping me. I just want to say “thank you” for what you’ve done and what you are doing to assist me. – Carey “Eugene” Clarke

Thanks to the services offered through DLW Veterans Outreach and Training Center I am now in position to receive benefits I feel are due me as a Navy veteran of the Viet Nam War. For years I have suffered with many ailments related to my experiences there, my most prominent disability has been suffering from PTSD. Until I visited DLW I felt I had no one to help me, no one to direct me to get help for myself. Now I am getting the help, the assistance, and direction I need to put my life back together; and its all because of the assistance of the Service officers at DLW Veterans Outreach and Training Center. Thanks for the help, fellows, and keep doing what you’re doing. – Herman Blue

Before I met David, I’d been homeless for 3 years & had to give up my daughter for adoption. David & his team of Veterans, not only have compassion, kind spirits, sensitivity to every veteran, regardless of gender or race. But they possess the ability to draw out the best of me, despite all I’ve suffered. That in & of itself, is a gift from God. I am blessed to say that DLW has not only helped me w/ my benefits, but housing & I am now a volunteer. I am blessed to know them & it’s an honor to be able to help veterans just like me. –Tango

Thanks for helping me to get my benefits and achieve my service connected disability rating increase. – Donald Wall

Thanks to my friends at DLW Veterans Center. You guys said my husband should get his PTSD claim approved and he did. After all these years and bad experiences we have lived with since Vietnam he is finally given his compensation. Your patience and knowledge of veterans claims explained to people like myself and my husband was great. Even when I kept doubting because of all the prior negativety experienced when we tried to file a claim. You made it happen. Thanks to your staff and veteran service officers. We owe your organization a donation $$$ for your services. Coming soon
