The Bird that Didn't Fly South

A friend posted a link to an article describing some proposed changes to the way veterans file for disability. As a lover of efficiency I say this isn't all that bad an idea. Especially since it's dealing with federal civil servants. Except for one thing, the most helpful federal civil servants I have ever met (present company INCLUDED) were people who work for the Veteran's Administration.

As a lover of the American Military I say this isn't all that bad an idea. Our military forces deserve better service, faster service, and more efficient service especially from federal civil servants. Except for one thing, the most helpful federal civil servants I have ever met (present company INCLUDED) were people who work for the Veteran's Administration. 

As a veteran I say this isn't all that bad an idea but it could use some tweaking. There should still be an exception for people who are elderly, who can't read, who don't have access to a computer or the internet especially since they will have to deal with federal civil servants. Except for one thing, the most helpful federal civil servants I have ever met (present company INCLUDED) were people who work for the Veteran's Administration.

As a disabled veteran I say this isn't all that bad idea except that it could use some tweaking,. Chief among the tweaks would be that I volunteer to help any vet that needs help filing under this system or the use of a computer. In fact, I've talked several vets in to filing for disability. I have contemplated filing an appeal to increase my disability but would rather leave the small difference I could get for some other vet that needs it more than me. In fact, I'd venture a guess that there are many others like me who would willingly give of their time to help others file their disability claims with the VA. As an example, the most helpful federal civil servants I have ever met (present company INCLUDED) were people who work for the Veteran's Administration.

I suspect the greatest fear driving the push to keep things the way they are is just because it is change.

Change is not always bad, ask the bird that didn't fly south for the winter.
