  •  llbear and me have been working with this vet (10+ / 0-)

    situation close to a year now.   This Ohio vet.   We are getting absolutely nowhere....I have called in people, he has called in people and the situation just gets messier and messier as each day passes.  I remember one night around April 12, Bear and me were on the phone 3 straight hours.  I have hit up all my contacts and so has he.   We have gone to the radio reporters, the WH, and there is only one solution... It is not the first time brought up...MaudeDeVictor brought it up at the VA in the late 70's,,,I brought it up to Max Cleland's head staffer and here we are again.  Write legislation to let the claim live after the patient passes.   It has to now become a movement and calls made to legislators.   It has to be written as specialkegislation  in addition to Title 38 as a lump back pay sum and then surviors benefits from the time the Vet passes.   IT MUST BE DONE.  When the vet dies,,,the claim dies and it should not be this way as the vet is not the only one who has suffered through the nightmare of hurry up and wait and wait and wait.  Call ..Write.....Leave statements...messages, Tweet....all to to your legislatior and demand this NOW.  It is past ime to stop this abuse of veteran rights...People are hurting and people are dying in another war... The war at home with the red tape and oncompetence.

    We the People have to make a difference and the Change.....Just do it ! Be part of helping us build a veteran community online. United Veterans of America
