Scream away....thats your right.

I'm only referencing VA disability benefits, I know of no asset restrictions.
If John McCain can qualify.....maybe you need a better advocate.

If there are no restrictions. Why does it take months or years before a deserving vet can get thru the piles of red tape to receive his/her rightly deserved benefits?
The VA should be providing anything and everything a vet needs. Including track chairs and prosthetics.
These men and women have earned it.
It should not take a separate charity. WOUNDED WARRIORS or OTHER PRIVATE CHARITY to get them what they need?
It's a defenseless argument. Making excuses for a poorly run operation.

Maybe it's because we've been "fighting" undeclared war since 1990.
It took my first review 4mos in 1972. Approved
It took my second review in 2012 18mos. Approved
My third in Jan 2015 pending.

'A defenseless argument'... ok, thats your interpretation, I do not share it.

I am glad you are happy with that kind of service.
My expectations are higher than yours when it comes to serving our veterans.

Please keep your vituperative estimation of my expectations to yourself....I'm very satisfied with the care I've gotten.
Your life experience may be different and and that's understandable, but don't question my level of commitment.

Bob

The OP posted about Wounded Warrior. As a 24 year vet of the U.S. Army, I have both good and bad things to report on the VA...As I fall out side the Wounded Warrior program criteria, i can't support a charity that has those type boundaries. Any and all donations I now make go to the Salvation Army....nothing to do with soldiers, everything to do with "Doing the most good for all"

Gents,

Great to see so many interpretations and perceptions. Gives a lot to think on.

Recap:
1. Not everyone agrees with WWP
2. All seem to be in favor or charities of some sort
3. Disagreements with VA benefits
4. SilverEagle Reminded everyone there was an option outside of veterans charities

It is up to WBCCI's executive board to decide who the WBCCI money goes to. If you have concerns, tell your Region President or member of the EC. The EC should review charity's efficiency rating before making commitments. No charity or government department is perfect.

I was denied VA benefits because my wife and my pensions are to high, they also denied a close friend same grounds. He is nam vet 100% and 60% agent orange & heart, finally he got benes after many revues and delays and intervention by sen. and congressman. I got my card after his stepson that is slightly disabled marine knew some one at VA but I am only 1 level down from top as useless except for discounts where given for vets, no med benes, okay with me as medicare is great and I pay for meds. myself I do not have any expensive meds. The horror storys about VA are true, also friend has to go for revue every yr. to see if is still disabled and he only has 1 leg

I'll say again there are no asset restriction's on DISABILITY benefits.

VA Disability

"VA Disability is a benefit paid to a veteran because of injuries or diseases that happened while the veteran was on active duty or were made worse by active military service. (It is also paid to certain veterans disabled from VA health care).

VA Disability benefits are tax-free. Veterans may be eligible for disability compensation if they have a service-related disability and they were discharged under other than dishonorable conditions.

Notice that there aren't any income restrictions for VA Disability! This is because if the VA finds the veteran's condition to be service connected, it is admitting that the veteran's service played a major role in their condition and the veteran should be compensated as a result.

Obviously, a veteran's current income should have no role in this "service connected" determination – and it doesn't."

From DAV benefit guide.



I'll admit the reviews do take time, my most recent approval took 18 months, retroactive to the date of the claim.

I have a review open now.

My first claim in 1972 took 4 months.

!990-2015....25yrs of undeclared conflict tends to slow things down a bit.

POI... you can't claim a 160% disability. But spouse's and dependents may be eligible for added compensation.

Bob
