What we do day to day.
The mission of Armo Press, LLC, and its DisabledVeterans.org publication is to observe and audit the behaviors of Department of Veterans Affairs leadership, personnel, and third party government contractors, and compair their conduct against reports of veterans in the field. We frequently notice significant difference between what the agency informs Amercian taxpayers of its actions versus contradictory reports from veterans and their family members.
The company synthesizes that information with data gleened through Freedom of Information Act requests into news reports, opinion essays, and educational resources for veterans.
Veterans and interested parties support our mission by sharing and reading resources on this website, as well as purchasing access to materials designed to educate veterans in self-advocacy.
What We Will Accomplish By 2025.
Fast forward three years. We have a team of like-minded veteran advocates who support developing veteran leaders through enhancement and transparency in federal vocational training, retraining, and academic education.
We run a veteran vocational center to rehabilitate qualified veterans toward entrepreneurial endeavors and become the leading resource help veterans achieve economic indepenence.
