Iraq combat veteran launches free military benefits report service

An Iraq combat veteran and Purple Heart recipient is to set to mark Independence Day by launching www.MilitaryBenefitsReport.com, the first comprehensive benefits reporting system for all branches of the military.

Active service members, veterans, and their families can use this unique service to generate free personalized reports that detail what military benefits they could be entitled to and how they can claim them.

“After being discharged from the military, I had an incredibly hard time tracking down all the benefits I should have been able to take advantage of,” said Wolfgang Ward, the founder of MilitaryBenefitsReport.com. “The United States does an amazing job of taking care of its service members at all levels, providing them with an incredible array of opportunities. The only problem is that it can be very difficult to find and take advantage of them.”

MilitaryBenefitsReport.com was developed to solve this problem using a custom software solution that scans a complete and constantly updated database of service member (and family) benefits to generate personalized benefits reports for each visitor to the site, based on their answers to a quick and easy online questionnaire.

“MilitaryBenefitsReport.com is the work of genius. Having the ability to mass personalize custom-tailored benefits based on the eligibility criteria and location of the soldier, with tens of thousands of individual programs available nationwide, has never been done before on this scale,” says Justin Sherman, Personnel Service NCO. “I have never been able to serve my soldiers and their families better than to refer them to their MilitaryBenefitsReport.com.”

Wolfgang Ward was discharged in 2005 after serving two tours in Iraq and was on the front lines during the invasion of Fallujah. His actions in combat are featured in Fallujah, With Honor, authored by Gary Livingston, as well as The Triumph Book: Heroes, to be published by Triumph Press in 2012. Three years after his discharge, he wrote the book, The Iraq/Afghanistan Veteran Handbook.

http://www.MilitaryBenefitsReport.com was founded in 2011 to ensure that every service member and their families are able to know about, understand, and receive all the benefit that they are entitled to.
