I think that it is great to have an organization like yours to get thgins done, however, some of the thgins that need to be done may seem insignificant, but will help all Veterans and Disabled Veterans. The inconsistency in claims, the erroneous decisions that are made, what the Army and the VA does to Soldiers/Veterans, especially to Army Reservists is to me criminal . I call what they do to us Theft by Taking . There is no other way to describe it. They systematically deny, deny, deny and just expect us to go away, but that’s not going to happen. Once these problems are fixed I know that the problems will take care of a lot of thgins Soldiers and Veterans are fighting for and will make the claims process a lot easier. These thgins, like the VA Medical Side not having access to the Veterans Medical Records over in the VA Benefits building not more than a couple hundred yards away. That is a definite problem. The VA was not paying travel expenses in a pretty devious way and it cost Veterans a lot of money. This problem needs to be fixed and for those that didn’t get travel for medical appointments at the VA Hospital, what happened to the money? That money was allocated for Veterans to travel to and from VA Hospital and a lot of people didn’t know they were supposed to get it and the VA was ripping off the Veteran and I have contacted the VA IG just this past week, but it is definitely something that needs to be fixed. The claims process is one I am taking on big time. The inequities and illogical decisions in the claims evaluation needs to change and I am going to change it. I could use some help, but there are thgins that affect each and every Veteran and once changed will make thgins a lot easier for Veterans to get what they are entitled to. I have been successful in two areas as far as claim review, but I still think it needs to go farther. It is a start, but need some oomph behind my efforts and I think it will benefit all Veterans, which is a very important goal for me, as well as to get my claims fixed. I am already at 100%, but there are a lot of other thgins that are still messed up that I will be fixing for the benefit of all. It’s all about taking care of Soldiers and Veterans. That’s what needs to be done and that’s what I fully plan to do. Once the problems are fixed, it will be a lot easier to adjudicate claims. Thanks for all you do!!! Very Respectfully, Dave
