Im gonna try to remember this case the next time VA starts saying about how VA benefits are a pro claimant system, and this is why VA gets to do stuff like control all of our evidence, often losing or shredding it when its convienient for them.  There has even been a well known case where VA "altered the documents" of a Veteran in order to pay him less benefits.  I read of it, but can not recall the case right now.  

VA should hold their head in shame for taking this to scotus so they can pay Veterans lower education benefits.
