Backlog of disability claims swamps VA

There are 2 comments on the story from Jan 31, 2012, titled Backlog of disability claims swamps VA. In it, reports that:

WASHINGTON The Department of Veterans Affairs is facing a growing backlog of disability claims, fueled by veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan and a policy change making it easier for Vietnam veterans to file Agent Orange-related claims.

All of the VA VARO offices are over loaded with claims and it's not getting any better. Claims are coming in via internet faster then they can put them in order...

Well nothing NEW with the VA they said with the NEW E system we can go faster and get claims out faster lol on that one NOW they blam some of the problems on Vietnam vets and AO real nice of them to say WE are to blam and it's the system they use in the VA and VARO is to blame!

Iraq veterans I feel for in the months and years that will drag on with NO money and NO claims and NO dates on when nothing will happen!

You would think if you come out with less then two legs and it was during there war time VA would give auto claims for said wounds!

Stupid way for 90 years the VA has been behind

sad sad day for more Veterans
