    stage to have any impact. But then I wonder if that doesn't prejudice the review.

    Those who fought the war in Afghanistan won it. Get them out of Afghanistan NOW . . . It's long past time. To vote for me at NN13: \a< Thank you

      at least twenty inquiries to the VA based on incorrect/outdated info posted on the VA ebenefits website regarding my Claim and Appeal - & as a result of the White House getting involved, that that website is woefully outdated.  I was told "don't pay attention to anything posted by the VA there.  When the backlog gets as high as it has been for a while, nobody ever updates that info.  Disregard it completely."  The calls also gave me a uniform message that I was 6,000 in the queue of 17,000 (if I remember correctly) and that no one knows when there will be any decisions.  One Claims person told me "We have fewer workers than we did under the last administration and the caseloads have skyrocketed."  He told me other things that he said were "off the record."  He was angry that the VA was getting such bad coverage on this issue in the media.  Imagine that.  He finally ended the conversation abruptly.
