I don't qualify for any veteran benefits because ! served in the Army Reserves for my obligation period! But after reading this story, it just vehemently pisses me off to no end!!

And to add to it, you always see this bullshit:

"VA does not condone misconduct by its employees and will take the appropriate correction action for those who violate VA policy,"

The government's typical response to a moronic, stupid action on their part!! Just substitute VA for any governmental agency you care to!

The article is: As vets await checks, VA workers get $24M bonuses

Veterans bonuses

This is just typical VA bullshit..........not that I am saying its right.............but I don't see it ever ending...............do you realize that it can take up to 18 months for a widow to get a pension even when her husband was a 100% service connected disabled and died from ailments that were directly related to agent orange....18 months..........in that time she can lose her home, not be able to buy or pay for utilites or food...........especially if she was not working when he died.................

It can take even longer for Vets who have applied for disability to get it...........these men served our Country and now when they are no longer able to be productive in the work force they can lose everything they own waiting for the disability they deserve.

They have people answering the 800 number that don't know what they are talking about (if you can even understand them..........a lot don't speak very good English) Now there is no one that knows all the rules of the VA........my county VA officer was actually uniformed about a lot of things...........including when Dayna is pissed she calls Washington DC and gets things done...........Its sad anyway you look at it........

When my dad could not get his benefits I showed up at my congressman's office in person. When I left it was all straight.

Contacting your Congressman usually gets results if there is any thing that can possibly be done. Another excellent source for help dealing with the VA is the American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars. I recommend contacting the American Legion office in your area. They are on your side. The VA is on the governments side. I have a son in the military and one of my best friends husband is a disabled vet from Vietnam era.

Well, there ya go! If one person can cause change- just think what millions could accomplish with our government, if we get pissed enough!!! What I can't understand is, why our citizens aren't doing just that to let the politicians know, they're skating on thin ice!!!

The American Legion can be some help some of the time...........but I would suggest you don't count on them totally.........sadly many times they appoint people that have no clue how the VA works or what they can do to help the veteran or spouse...........I tried that ..........thank God I didn't count on them or the DAV solely for help.........or I would still be waiting for my widows pension.......

The information provided is valuable, but unless a person follows through at every step the likelihood of failure is almost assured. We should not be forced to PUSH our way through the system, but this is the only way I have EVER received any positive results.

What I can't understand is, why our citizens aren't doing just that to let the politicians know, they're skating on thin ice!!!
I understand what you are saying, but until a like minded group here or elsewhere is willing to take up the sword with a well thought-out plan of action complete with solutions on board very little, if anything productive will occur.

It's easy to complain about the administration, but it's our responsibility as citizens to inform the government about our issues and engage them with knowledge, experience and a plan of action... and to deliver it relentlessly for as long as it takes. Nothing less will bring about positive, productive results.

Even better is when you are a 2nd Lt. retired and they decide that you died. Try proving that you are who you say you are? If he hadn't had a photo from the army air corps when he was technically only 16 years old and didn't still look almost the same only older.. he'd never have gotten things straightened out. This was my dad.. and it took two years to prove he was still alive.

I am a veitnam vet (Da Nang 1968 ) And I fought them under numerous administrations. The VA is full of complacent uncareing assholes, lacking people skills and compasion. They are overpaid to no end.You sit for hours to be seen, while they bullshit on there cell phones with family and friends , or stand chatting with one another. Vital medication is constanly late arriving in the mail, ect. They brag about how well they care for us, yeah right, remember the Walter REED story!
That hospital is a joke, as with all the goverenment, the right hand doesn't know what the left is doing. It's time something was done.We risked our lives for that right to benifits. Unfortunately, the reserves have never been eligable, unless they were on active duty for a qualifing period of time.
