Veterans Affairs’ informal claims process, a format veterans have used for decades to easily file date place-holders for initial claims, ends today to the detriment of veterans, according to advocates, reports Stars & Stripes’ Heath Druzin


Lest we forget: The Marine Barracks bombing, Beirut
The Veterans of Foreign Wars and Disabled American Veterans say they are considering legal action against newly required standardized forms. Bergmann & Moore is against the change, arguing that confusion, no required response time from VA, a lack of advertising and training, and expecting legal and medical expertise from veterans in filling out the new forms will cause veterans not to submit their forms, and, therefore, VA’s claims backlog to disappear. Partners Glenn Bergmann and Joe Moore are available for comment today. kkennedy@vetlawyers.com.

It’s the last day for comments on a proposed rule that would allow VA to look at the last three years of a veterans’ finances to determine if he or she is eligible for a pension, reports the Desert Dispatch’s Jose Quintero.




VA is relaxing the rule that allows veterans who live more than 40 milesaway from a VA facility to get private care, changing it so it’s 40 driving miles, rather than 40 miles “as the crow flies,” reports The Associated Press Matthew Daly.


In her first speech on the Senate floor, Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, an Iraq war veteran, proposed legislation that would provide private mental health care for veterans if they could not get it through VA, reports USA TODAY’s Christopher Doering.
