  •  I am going to make a plea on (5+ / 0-)

    behalf of llbear here.  Bob needs hope and encouragement.   He needs someone from the VA or this government to say, " Bob, we are working on this".  We will help you...  Then see that it is done.   llbear and myself would also like for people to start contacting all the reps to stop this backlog and ignoring claims.  
    This past year this administration had a special ceremony to welcome home Viet nam veterans  but the words are not measuring the action.  We need to clear up the claims and get the VN veteran claims satisfied or else we will never ever get through the Afghan and Iraq claims.   We need to make sure there is absolute attention either by liason or whatever being dedicated to the health and well being and just compensation to these veterans.  They are older and there has to be some outrage on congressional levels to cut this beauracratic BS that clearly isn't or  hasn't worked .  The key is the VISN groups and I scream this daily.  Make the benefits and healthcare more universal under the VA and if a VISN group has too many things going wrong...someone has to step up and say.  Your region is not working and time for change here.  Florida and Ohio has a sorry VISN group IMO.   They are notorious for ignorning or getting attitude and contracting out services and not helping the vet .

    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
