Veterans State Benefits – Arizona was the first book launched by Veterans State Benefits Books. The author of this book, Derek Simmons, was a career soldier in the United States Army until a tragic accident ended his military service. After becoming permanently disabled with 14 years of service, he was medically retired.
With the launch of his first book, the author, Derek Simmons, found great satisfaction, but something was missing. So, he set his sights on the great state of Texas. This big state meant big benefits and entitlements! Texas offers lots of outdoor recreation and leisurely activities for everyone.
Veterans State Benefits – Montana will be our third book in the Veterans State Benefits Books Series, and it will be published soon! Derek claims Montana as his home, and he wants to give back to the veterans in Big Sky Country. There is no doubt that Montana is an outdoorsman’s paradise. Veterans living in or visiting the Big Sky State will find a wide variety of perks, discounts and entitlements when enjoying the great outdoors.
