VA reaching out to help Kansas veterans finalize claims, hear feedback at town

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WICHITA, Kansas — The Robert J. Dole VA Medical Center wants to hear directly from veterans and their families about their experiences with their services.

The facility has scheduled a town hall from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday in the facility's auditorium. The agency VA's regional office in Wichita also will be holding a benefits claim clinic from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Representatives from the Dole VA Medical Center will be available to provide one-on-one assistance to veterans during the town hall. Senior staff and medical experts will be in a move to improve communications with veterans, their families, and other beneficiaries.

Veterans can get help for their benefits claims at the clinic, and the VA says staff will be on hand to finalize their claims as appropriate.

Shoddy Care For Veterans Becomes Campaign Issue

Rep. Howard Waxman says the Veterans Affairs bureaucracy is impenetrable. His opponent says Waxman hasn't tried hard enough.

By Steve Lopez
Los Angeles Times

Pg. 2

Bob Rosebrock and I sat under a tree on the West Los Angeles Department of Veterans Affairs property, discussing his pet peeve: How the country is failing its veterans. There was plenty to talk about.

Nearby was the gleaming $253-million California Veterans Home, opened with great fanfare more than two years ago, with local politicians lining up to take bows.

Iraq War Veteran Challenges Military On Injury Benefits

WASHINGTON — Tanya L. Towne was wearing her full “battle rattle” when she got injured preparing for war. Now the Pentagon must explain why that should be treated differently from a combat-related injury.
