Note: Real War Photos staff does a preliminary vetting on the postings above, including positive and negative reviews, but we cannot guarantee the informational accuracy provided by the companies.  There are some great folks with sincere intent offering veterans help. However, all vets need to be aware that mistakes happen and con men are out there.  Be awake and aware before you give out any personal information especially if a site offering "help", pushes you to 'pay for services'...simply hang up if you are not 100% comfortable.  Your feedback is appreciated here to comment.  If you are a valid resource and would like posting consideration, email details to:
