Well when you bring home 40,000 troops and half have to leave the serveces you will have back log of claims! wait till 2013 and more troops let go and sent packing back home!

It's Vietnam all over again 1975 -1980 VA was flooded with so many claims and so many asking to see Dr's at the VA it took 6 mos or longer and months to even get paper work and in the VA system!

it's a shame but welcome to 2012 and long waits to see a Dr. and long waits to get a claim working.

VFW local here has seen 157 vets in the last month who are filing claims with the VA for service connection that is ONE VFW what is going on all over the USA?????????
