“Delay, Deny, Wait Till I Die”: Growing Number of Vets Die Awaiting...

In the fiscal year that ended in September, the agency paid $437 million in retroactive benefits to the survivors of nearly 19,500 veterans who died waiting. The figures represent a dramatic increase from three years earlier, when the widows, parents and children of fewer than 6,400 veterans were paid $7.9 million on claims filed before their loved one’s death.

These veterans range from World War II veterans who die of natural causes without their pensions to Iraq War veterans who commit suicide after their disability claims for post-traumatic stress disorder are denied.

The ranks of survivors waiting for these benefits also have surged, from fewer than 3,000 in December 2009 to nearly 13,000 this month i.e. January 2013.

Dying Iraq War Veteran Tomas Young Explains Decision to End His Life

Tomas Young, Iraq War veteran and the main subject of the documentary, Body of War. On April 4, 2004, his fifth day in Iraq, Young’s unit came under fire in the Sadr City neighborhood of Baghdad. Young was left paralyzed, never to walk again. Released from medical care three months later, Young returned home to become an active member in Iraq Veterans Against the War. He recently announced that he will stop his nourishment, which comes in the form of liquid through a feeding tube — a decision which will hasten his death.

I have used them before and they were not very co-operative.

However, what I would do is contact the News Media in that area or Headquarters and watch them scramble

and get the Congressmen and Senators going. The Committee on Armed Services.

Pisses me the hell off!  I will share this.  Also, it does help to send emails/calls to the mayor, governor, senators and congressman.  They have done my son wrong, I wrote emails to all the above and they did help us.  Thanks James.

Abuse of veterans goes back a long way to when McArthur was ordered to hunt out the protesting WW1 veterans from the park, this was years after the war. All they wanted was the benefits that were promised to them

Abuse is inherent in politicians it would seem, continues right up to the present day
