Heads Up To Any Vet,
Seems the V.A. shredders @ 3-4 locations have been destroying some vital irreplaceable documents waiting on claims or reviews, please follow this link if you are a Vet who has recently mailed in any vital certificates to the affected V.A. regions hearing your claims. Hopefully you did it certified/return receipt requested!
They claim it is only a small error but if you have vital comp & pen issues tied up with the affected regions, it may be worth calling them an asking what is the status of your claim under Freedom Of Information act request(s), Jay help me out here.
"Detroit, St. Louis, St. Petersburg, Fla., and Waco, Texas — were identified as having documents in shredding bins that should not have been there."
