This site has been a godsend while transitioning from active duty to medically retired. Thanks to all of you. Next step is navigating qualifying for a VA Home Loan. I have the COE and am now looking for recommendations for a VA lender. I live in Washington State but am considering moving to Idaho where I hope to buy. Any suggestions for a lender to work with while in Washington?
