December 4, 2013
At a Veterans' Affairs Disability Assistance and Memorial Affairs (DAMA) Subcommittee hearing today, Congressman Gus M. Bilirakis (R-FL), Vice-Chairman of the Veterans' Affairs Committee, heard from veterans, including YN1 Lauren Price, USN (Ret.), who is one of the Congressman's constituents, regarding their problems resolving complex claims currently tied up in the VA backlog. The veterans appearing before the committee expressed great frustration with the VA and its inability to resolve these claims, some of which have been pending for more than 10 years.
