New Veterans benefits website to launch

A friend of mine is starting up a Veterans Benefits website. I am assisting her with the seo, and content.

Janet is a Gulf war Veteran and has that go getter never say quit attitude most Non-Commissioned officers have. For those of you who do know that would be E-5 or above Sgts. on up to Sgt. Major of the Army.

We are picking a domain name this weekend and we are going to make sure we get the term "Veterans Benefits" in the name.
We will have the site live by 1/1/09.

Just for you who are Veterans here is the contact information for the Veterans administration. Source

The VONAPP (Veterans On Line Applications) website is an official U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (V A) website, which enables veterans to apply for benefits using the Internet. U.S. military veterans and some service members within six months of separation or retirement can apply for compensation, pension, and vocational rehabilitation benefits.
U.S. military veterans, service members with two years of service, and members of the Selected Reserve can apply for education benefits.
VONAPP also has a link to VA Form 10-10EZ, Application for Health Benefits.
How is using this site different from visiting a V A office?When you use this site to complete and send an application to V A, your application will be sent directly to the V A office with jurisdiction over your application. Processing will begin and you will receive an automated e-mail response from the V A office letting you know that it received your application.
It can be important for you to submit your claim as soon as you can if it is near the end of a month, whether by regular mail or using VONAPP, to ensure we receive it before the first of the next month. In some cases, your entitlement is based on the date we receive your claim in V A and you might lose a month's benefits if we find you eligible but you wait until the end of the month to send it to us.
In VONAPP, your electronic submission using the Internet is time and date stamped in V A when you successfully submit. That time and date is the Eastern Time (ET) at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where it is electronically received by V A, regardless of your geographic location around the world.
