Dismay is rising among the ranks of our veterans as the government office thatâ€™s supposed to take care of them appears unable to do its job â€“ seemingly paralyzed by the overwhelming number of benefit claims it has been receiving.
A recent report says more than half a million of our former servicemen and women have pending applications for benefit claims for months now but still without a response from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. It says on average it takes six months for the VA to act on benefit claims, and that it many cases the applications are either rejected or sent back to the applicants with a note asking for more proof of the validity of their claims.
The report says in 2009, 11,000 veterans waited for a year before their benefit applications were approved. Now, the number has reportedly risen to 245,000.
For veterans with no jobs and no source of income or financial support, for those who are dealing with horrible injuries, trauma, depression, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, such a delay or denial of government benefits is unconscionable.
After all the sacrifices they rendered to our nation, getting bloodied and suffering physical injuries and mental trauma to fulfill their mission of protecting our rights and our nationâ€™s security, this is what they get.
This is truly beyond belief. Our poor veterans canâ€™t do anything more than to wait and hope for better days ahead. Some of these veterans probably live in your community. You might have seen some of them on the streets, begging for alms, for food, clothing, medical care, and shelter.
You may have wanted to help them but donâ€™t know how to do it. We at Veteran Car Donations are here precisely to guide you on the best way to come to the aid of these distressed veterans. With our Hesperia, California car donations program, you can conveniently provide assistance to the veterans in your city in the comforts of your home with just a simple phone call to us and a willingness to donate your old and probably unwanted car.
