You served your country, and in the process you were injured. It could be a bad back. It could be loss of limb. Or maybe you're not sure if you're entitled to any government benefits. American Legion service officers file thousands of VA claims each year on behalf of America's veterans. And the Legion's Benefits Calculator can help you prepare to file a claim.
Peter Gaytan – executive director of The American Legion’s Washington office – appeared this morning on “Fox and Friends” to discuss the Department of Veterans Affairs claims backlog.
Gaytan briefly discussed the Legion’s successful efforts in reducing the backlog, problems with VA’s work-credit system for claims adjudicators, and the need for a VA-Department of Defense electronic medical records system.
