Information for military vets 

Military vets looking for information about their disability or pension checks, help is here. If you usually receive monthly disability or pension by direct deposit, it will be made as usual. If you normally receive a check or you can't reach your bank, you can get a "paper convenience check" by calling (800) 827-1000 or by visiting any VA regional office in the country. Participants in the Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment program who have questions about their benefits can call the Little Rock, Ark., office at (501) 370-3780. Dry reporting, sure, but certainly good news for a large portion of the coast's population.

For the next hurricane path projected rita ; the easy way to keep going.
