Description

Adams and Young from the Knight Ridder Washington Bureau investigated the Department of Veterans Affairs to see how it was handling veterans' disability compensation programs. They found inconsistencies among states, over half a million eligible veterans who were not receiving benefits, a 23 percent in processing claims, and more than 13,700 veterans who died in the past decade while waiting for an appeal on their claims to be resolved, among other problems.
