My expertise comes from experience.
I am able to provide meaning for families about their veteran’s service and to help the veteran, if living and able/willing, to share their history. It all starts with the veteran’s Military Discharge Document - most commonly the AGO Form 53-55 or DD-214. Take a look at this form. To far too many, this form is meaningless. Blocks of dates, codes, abbreviations and confusing details. From my training and experience, combined with a strong knowledge of military history, I can decipher this one page military resume and help veterans and families find the details about their service.
