@IAVA praises bi-partisan Senate letter to President Obama to #EndTheVABacklog

“The growing impatience over the VA disability claims backlog is one of the few genuine bi-partisan issues in Washington today. IAVA appreciates these leaders in the Senate for their bipartisan efforts to help end the backlog and ensure that veterans get the benefits and care they need. We appreciate Senators Casey and Heller for organizing this important letter with their colleagues. And we especially are honored that two veterans, Senators Lautenberg and McCain, joined this effort. Our veterans now need to hear from the President about how he plans to bring the number of veterans in the backlog to zero,” said Paul Rieckhoff, CEO and Founder of IAVA.
