I know we all want to be a toughguy till the very end else we would not have been in SF to begin with. But at some point we all must move on. Currently I am trying to take advantage of programs thru the VA & find much of the red tape difficult to get through.

I am wondering if any of you have experience you can hand down to me in dealing with the VA & getting a business loan. I know I qualify, and I know how to fill out forms, but as many of you may have experienced, being SF or x-SF does not mean the bearucracy types welcome you with open arms, nor does anyone jump out of their way to offer helpful information. In some ways it seems like I have been walking in the wrong doors at places.

Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

Haven't navigated the waters on that issue with the VA, but they are not the sole source for veteran small-business loans.

This might give you some options.

Unfortunately you are going to be dealing with a government bureaucracy that is not rewarded for results....

Thank you for your quick response. I am sure it will give me a lil more insight.

My appologies to The_Reaper and other members of this site if this question falls outside of the guildlines & focus of this site.

I'm not too sure, but i'm pretty sure the VA paid for a lot of my college. I went to Physical Therapist Assistant Course at a Near by Community college. Yep!, went from old style amimal to peaceful human...sorta. Blitz :lifter
