Presented to The Veterans' Disability Benefits Commission
May 19, 2006

VVA wishes to emphasize that as the Commission assesses the applicable laws and regulations that determine VA claimants’ eligibility for benefits, the appropriateness of the VA rating schedule and comparable Federal, state and private sector disability programs, you will bear in mind the unique nature of military service and the sacrifice of our citizen soldiers.  

Veterans’ health problems are really occupational health problems of a collection of very dangerous occupations in which we engaged in order to protect America. In addition, veterans are a special class of individuals, who did and do what others were reluctant or refused to do, and deserve a disability compensation system as unique as they are and as functional as can be possible.
