    After attending the compensation and disabilities advisory group meeting, I just started getting educated in the last couple of months. As I get closer to the issues, I'm seeing a lot of very concerned individuals (often from VSOs) but haven't had much opportunity to talk directly with VA officials in this realm. I did work with quite a few on the education side as Post 9/11 GI Bill rolled out and as they went through the poop-storm early on, many were outspoken about fixing the mess. They did make lots of progress on the education side but I'm sure there's no comparison to the size and complexity of the problems involved. Right now, I'm going to keep trying to learn and share. I'm open for whatever my brothers and sisters think might work to help things along. Ilbear's cautions are well-founded and he's been much closer to the issues than a lot of folks. It's very thorny territory.
