Congress sent to the president for his signature a 60 billion $ war bill. Included in this bill was 13.4 billion for the VA. This is the monies that the VA requested to pay veterans retroactivily for 3 presumptive diseases.So far not one of the services organizations has even mentioned this part of the bill and the VA still has not issued it final regulation.
