    Finally, got my "first 4x4" in a Tacoma. Barcelona Red w/ JBL & Entune - Then traded it in on a Ridgeline.

    Posting this in the "miltary section" ... because it deals with the military and the VA.

    I have a few things to get off my "to do list" first ... but I am seriously thinking of going back to school (accredited law school) to help veterans. And my services would be a good deal ... FREE ... if I can manage that.

    Will probably go to a "plain vanilla local law school" just to learn enough law to pass the bar exam, specialize somewhat in VA law, and help veterans in their fights with the VA.

    Recently talked to the VA and they may pay for it ... under an old "vocational rehab rule" ... it's a stretch, but it may work.

    Planning to get the JD to help veterans for free like I do now, but armed with more knowledge and ability to formally argue cases.

    50/50 at this point ... but I really think that I will try. Being a combat veterans with several disabilities and having been screwed by the system for years, I think that I can relate to the veteran's problems with the VA.

    Any advice, thoughts or ideas from any present lawyers or those in law school would be appreciated.
