First of all; thanks for serving.
Second; I have found that some of the VA hospitals are outstanding, (especially Fresno), whereas others.....
If that is important to you, (it is to me), then I would suggest surveying the hospitals in those areas so that you know before-hand.
Third; you sound like you haven't talked to your local VA office about, well everything.
Fourth; I would recommend the Navy Federal Credit Union, (I don't own it): You don't have to have been in the Navy, (though I would think more of you, if you had). They serve all services.

Good luck and may God bless

Thanks for your service to our nation from one Veteran to another. Decatur has a very good VA hospital.
Are you shopping for a Home? It may seem backwards to shop for a mortgage before you shop for the house, but there are several reasons for doing this. Shopping for a mortgage will also help if you can get “pre-approved” for the amount you’d like to borrow. This means the lender has looked over your credit and financial statement and agreed to lend you the money. Sellers like pre-approved buyers because there’s less risk the deal won’t go through. First, you’ll find out how much you can borrow, which has a lot to do with how much house you can buy.

Whether you’re, buying, building or Re-Financing your dream home, you have a lot riding on your decision. Market conditions and mortgage programs change frequently, and I welcome the opportunity to serve your needs with quick and accurate real estate financing advice. I have the expertise and knowledge to help you determine the absolute best loan program to meet your objectives. Get my Top 25 Questions for FREE that you should be asking your lender before you choose them to secure a mortgage along with a FREE copy of The 8 Deadly mistakes to avoid when buying a Home. If you are already working with a lender, don’t be shy to give me call so I can price the same mortgage for you with less cost. What do you have to loose but your money?

Ensuring that you make the right choice for you and your family is my ultimate goal. And I am committed to providing my customers with mortgage services that exceed their expectations.. As always, you may contact me anytime by phone, fax or email for personalized service and expert advice.

I look forward to working with you!

I am also a retired veteran and live in the North Georgia area - Cumming. I do not work in areas outside of the North Georgia area, but if you want to be in an area where you can use both your VA and your retired benefits, i.e., commissary, PX, etc. I would recommend either the Columbus, GA, or Augusta, GA areas. Both have active military bases and VA facilities.

The Decatur area would be good for you since there is a large VA hospital on Clairmont Rd. in Decatur. What type of home are you looking for and what is your price? I'd be glad to help you in your search.
