re: VA Gets New Support To Tackle Paperless Claims
Still grossly underfunded, and many issues finally being cared for but long ignored as others are now, and the monies are still borrowed as the country continues it's want Not to fund the wars but especially the results of!!!

How does a Country HONOR It's Fallen, by Their Own 'Sacrifice' in Taking Care of the Brothers and Sisters They Served With!!

The Whole Country Served, Not Just The Many Caring Groups, with handfuls
of members and volunteers, who have to fight for funding when
successful and not getting grants, Within!!

"If military action is worth our troopsG blood, it should be worth our
treasure, too G not just in the abstract, but in the form of a specific
ante by every American." -Andrew Rosenthal 10 Feb. 2013

Rachel Maddow: 'Obama indicates beginning of end of war on terror', "We
got a huge round of tax cuts in this country a few weeks before9/11.
Once 9/11 happened and we invaded Afghanistan, we kept the tax cuts
anyway.

How did we think we were going to pay for that war? Did we think it was free?

Then, when we started a second simultaneous war in another country, we
gave ourselves a second huge round of tax cuts. After that second war
started. The wars, I guess, we thought would be free, don`t worry about
it, civilians. Go about your business." 23 May 2013

GǣWhy in 2009 were we still using paper?Gǥ VA Assistant Secretary Tommy
Sowers GǣWhen we came in, there was no plan to change that; weGve been
operating on a six month wait for over a decade.Gǥ 27 March 2013

WHY? GOOD QUESTION THOSE SERVED SHOULD ANSWER!

Prior too this present Executive and Veterans Administrations and just touching on the problems:

Army Times Oct. 16, 2008 - VA claims found in piles to be shredded

CNN iReport October 25, 2008 - House Vets' Committee To Probe VA Shredder Scandal

Tampa Bay Times Oct 27, 2008 - Hundreds of VA documents improperly
shredded, review finds {Tampa Bay Times search page and series of
articles}

CBS News February 11, 2009 - Veterans' Claims Found in Shredder Bins

And more disturbing in relation to even before and through the early
years of the Afghanistan, quickly abandoned missions of, and Iraq
occupations, this:

ProPublica and The Seattle Times Nov. 9, 2012 - Lost to History: Missing
War Records Complicate Benefit Claims by Iraq, Afghanistan Veterans

"DeLara's case is part of a much larger problem that has plagued the
U.S. military since the 1990 Gulf War: a failure to create and maintain
the types of field records that have documented American conflicts since
the Revolutionary War."

Add in the issues of finally recognizing in War Theater and more
Veterans, by this Veterans Administration and the Executive
Administrations Cabinet, what the Country choose to ignore from our
previous decades and wars of: The devastating effects on Test Vets and
from PTS, Agent Orange, Homelessness, more recent the Desert Storm
troops Gulf War Illnesses, Gulf War Exposures with the very recent
affects from In-Theater Burn Pits and oh so so much more! Tens of
Thousands of Veterans' that have been long ignored and maligned by
previous VA's and the whole Country and through their representatives!

These present wars have yet to be paid for! Rubber stamping and rapid
deficits rising started before 9/11 and continued with same for the
wars. But especially in the early some six years of extremely little
being added to the Veterans Administration budgets by those Congresses,
and since obstructed by same war rubber stampers, as to the long term
results of War, DeJa-Vu all over again.
