A Tonawanda man was recently featured in a Reader's Digest story about a backlog in requests by war veterans to receive federal assistance. I guess you have to shame the VA to get a claim looked at and awarded to a veteran? What does it take to get the VA to wake up to there 400,000 back log of claims and get our Veterans there money to live and have a life? Wont Vets off the street? Write Congress

It's sad you have to truen to NEWS in print or TV to shame the VA into looking into a claim. SO I guess if we get the NEWS one by one the back log in claims might shorter? we have 131,000 vets on the streets of the USA - We have the va sais 400,000 un worked claims in back log - so with every day no claims are worked and more added as our vets return from war we can look for more vets on the streets almost daily!
As in other news on the VA until we get the people taxpayers on the move to congress and senate to end the back logs and get help to our veterans nothing will change!
takes 6 months to a year to get a claim looked at and if the claim is turned down it can take 2 years or as much as 4 years to get it looked at again!
So it's time we the people do somthing for your son and 400,000 other vets and get congress moving on not a new hospital or vets center but work on back loged claims NOW
