It was and is much worse than this video would suggest. The OIG report showed that there was evidence of shredding in not one, not two, but 41 out of 57 Regional Offices, showing that shredding was widespread. This is not one or two "bad" employees as the VA suggests, but a real effort by VA management to illegally destroy Vets evidence. How did the VA deal with this? VA management bonuses, of course. When the VA shreds Vets evidence and gets paid for it, is it any wonder they continue it?

First of all this is an old story Kati Couric has not announced news in almost a year. Does not mean it fid not happen in fact they have been caught several times doing stuff like this.

In the end the VA does its thing with the approval of Congress, the Courses and the Administration.

Pete is right, This is dust swept under the rug with not much adverse action taken for the crimes committed.

All we can do is keep on keeping on. Folks, I know a lot of you are extremely anxious but do not keep bringing up old historical articles about the VA. This stuff does cause bitterness as well as it should for some. But we need to stay on target and remain focused on the issues at hand.

Besides, What can we do about it? Nothing.

I was told by a friend a very long time ago to be sure make a copy of everything that I send to the VA and my county VSO also scans everything I give him to send to the VA into his computer. I keep both paper copies and electronic copies on something like three hard drives plus my thumb drive.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
