Email to VA Officials - September 11, 2015
Below is the list of VA Officials that I emailed a letter to explaining the timeframe of my disability claim and a few pertinent details about my claim. I simply said that, "I am a Vietnam Era Vet trying to seek answers and help regarding my disability claim." After a brief recount of my situation, I ended the email with these 3 sentences.
1. Please understand that this is a brief overview of my situation. I’m just hoping it’s enough to get someone’s (anyone’s) attention.
2. At this point I’m looking for any help I can get to move my along my claim in a more timely manner since it been going on since July 2013.
3. I want to be taken seriously when it comes to my claims, not just pushed aside because the VA fails to keep accurate records.
