Our country is letting are Veterans down, Veterans Administration (VA) is backed logged a year in processing claims. So what does that mean in the real world. Consider this a Warrior returns home, medically discharge at 100% disability. OK so he has to file with the VA , including a copy of his medical records if he has them (Might have to request copies from records center) all this takes time. Keep in mind this warrior is no longer getting a pay check 100% disabled can not work. Now remember the years wait or longer, finally he get sent to a VA Clinic for a evaluation if the VA Doctor agrees his case is sent back to a regional VA Office and processed. Still no pay. So tell me what is this warrior living on. This is a disgrace, not except-able and a down right crazy. We must rally around our disabled warriors and their families write our Congressman/Senators. Get your local and state governor and representatives involved. ACT NOW!
Organizations like the Salvation Army, Workforce Centers, Churches and other community organizations are doing all they can to help
