Why is it so hard to get Veterans Benefits when you are a Vietnam Era Veteran?
Having been denied 3 times, I am now again waiting for an answer so I can get the medical diagnosis and treatment I need.
It took a colleague of mine almost 30 YEARS to receive full disability VA Benefits and treatment for his injuries in the Viet Nam Conflict. He kept trying to work and kept getting worse --
Whatever the reasons for the delay to the veterans of their benefits, I have to say that it may involve the conflict being an unpopular, undeclared war and the fact that the Baby Boomers in that military service are not only retiring from work and receiving SS, but also dying as senior citizens -- and each death - sorry, but true - reduces the money the VA must yield. In this way, red tape delay saves money as a side effect.

The Veteran Administration's, (VA) motto, a phrase from Pres. Lincoln's 1865 Second Inaugural Address, is sexist, and “symbolizes the agency’s resistance to gender equity.” It must be changed, says the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, (IAVA), veteran's...
