    3. VA Scandals

      Shreddergate and other scandals

      On the 13th of October, 2008, VA Watchdog dot Org broke the story about documents found in shredder bins at the VA's Detroit Regional Office.

      A number of those documents were critical to veterans' disability claims.

      As the story unfolded, VA finally began to release information on the incident and we learned that more than one Regional Office was involved in this shredder scandal.

      The VA's Office of Inspector General (VAOIG) is investigating.

      VA has instituted new guidelines regarding handling of documents.
