This article focuses on national service officers (NSOs) of the organization Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA). NSOs spend an exorbitant amount of time on the phone or working claims and trying to fix problems regarding medical benefits, treatment, prosthetic or pharmaceutical needs, and, at times, personal family issues. Louis P. Boncy Jr. is a Vietnam veteran who served in-country between October 1966 and October 1969. There always seems to be a stumbling block of one kind or another. They either never seem to get over it or have to work twice as hard to overcome the setbacks. This often touches NSOs personally. INSET: Help at Hand.
