Peter Lehman

Veteran Coach

A little about Peter

I am a very down-to-earth person who enjoys spending time with my family here in Western New York. I am married and have three wonderful children who keep me on my toes. I love to be outdoors, hunting all winter and fishing all summer. 

Ten years of Active Duty Air Force instilled a very strong work ethic in me. I believe that effort and hard work make me who I am and that integrity is my strongest trait. I believe in doing the right thing, even when it’s hard! 

I struggled with the VA Claims process for nearly eight years of researching and appealing before receiving my 100% P&T rating. However, not all veterans have the ability or resources to research the claims process extensively, nor should they have to. I want to help veterans receive the VA rating and benefits they fought for and rightfully deserve without years of “Red Tape.” 

I joined the Delayed Enlistment Program as a Junior in High School and went to Basic Training a month after graduation. I chose the Career Field of Security Forces because my father was a Police Officer and I love Law Enforcement. I served Active Duty for 10 years before I decided to separate. 

In the Air Force, the first Core Value is “Integrity First.” Integrity is one of the few things that cannot be taken from us; it has to be given away, and once that happens, it’s nearly impossible to get back. 

I am currently 100% P&T and received that rating in June 2022. Unfortunately, I did not use VA Claims Insider, which is likely why the process took me 8 years of researching, fighting, and appealing.
