The Battle to End the VA Backlog: Update for August 16-22, 2015
On Monday the VA reported that the disability compensation claims backlog fell to under 100,000, its lowest point since 2009, when the VA defined backlogged claims as those pending for 125 days or more. Since its peak in March 2013, the VA has reduced the backlog by 84 percent.
Why on earth would a “well-seasoned” IAVA member with no motorcycle license travel all over the country to Daytona Bike Week, Rolling Thunder in DC and Sturgis? Why hang out in the heat and ear splitting roar of modified motorcycles on a dyno when you can’t even try one out at the demo rides? There are actually a few very good reasons.
