About Dewayne Kimble

Dewayne Kimble is a US Army veteran that was born in Sikeston, Missouri and raised in Charleston, Missouri and Chicago, Illinois.  Before joining the army, Dewayne focused on his education, earning a Bachelor’s of General Studies from Southeast Missouri State University and a Master’s in Business Administration from William Woods University. 

He spent four and a half years in the Missouri Army National Guard as a Combat Engineer, and six years in the United States Army as a Battalion Fire Direction Section Chief.  While serving in the Army,  he was stationed at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma, Ledward Barracks (Schweinfurt, German), and Ft. Hood, Texas (1CAV Leads the way).  

After the military, he continued his education and worked for Proctor & Gamble as a Production Technician.  He also worked for  Kraft Foods/Oscar Myer as a Business Unit Coach and Operations Supervisor, Tropicana Products, as an Advisor and Start-Up Leader, and The Department of Veteran Affairs as a Journeyman Rating Veteran Service Representative. 

The latter allowed Dewayne to become directly involved in the VA Disability Compensation Claims decision process. This provided him with invaluable insight into the necessary paperwork and processes Veterans go through while trying to receive compensation benefits. This inspired him to create KMD89 VA Claims Consulting.  Dewayne is determined to “LEAVE NO VET BEHIND”.  He has created an understandable process that alleviates stress and helps EDUCATE Veterans on how to successfully maximize their VA disability compensation benefits.  

“The VA claims process was a long, confusing and frustrating process for me.  I don’t want any veteran to go through what I went through with my VA claim.”-Dewayne Kimble
