Letter: Not enough being done to help veterans

Published: Wednesday, May 8, 2013 at 04:42 PM.

Finally, the Veterans Administration is doing something I approve of by holding back bonuses. Why should senior VA officials be rewarded for incompetence?

As a disabled veteran, I find it appalling that there are over 872,000 backlog cases pending for veterans seeking benefits. How come all these members of Congress that want to give illegals benefits aren’t doing anything for these men and women that have served this country and need benefits? They are left to struggle for years on their own waiting on the VA, while members of Congress fight for peoples’ rights and benefits that aren’t even from this country and are here illegally.

Nobody in Congress seems to be losing any sleep over our disabled veterans and their families.
