In the first paragraph, the applicant should state why they are writing for aid. This is not the place for detail but for a brief overview of the reasons. There are many people writing for financial aid, so it is important in the first paragraph to be compelling with substantive reasons for seeking help.
The second paragraph should explain the situation that caused the applicant to require financial aid such as a disabled or wounded veteran or veteran parent who is out of work or cannot work. At this point, it is important to say that there are attached documents to verify the situation. They can also mention when they expect their financial situation to improve. The applicant should state why they feel they deserve assistance. If the applicant is a 100% disabled, they can mention what income they receive now and why it doesn’t suffice the day to day obligations.
These documents are always free to obtain for the service member and family members. Requests can be processed online or by mail/fax. Follow the link below to complete the online form or to print the form and mail/fax it to the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC).
