Lawmakers question slow pace of veterans benefits approval
Tens of thousands of military veterans may be falling through the cracks. They should be getting the VA benefits they earned, but, they aren't. In all, more than 500,000 military veterans served their country, but for one reason or another, they received other-than-honorable discharges. Besides those who were convicted in a general court-martial, went AWOL, or were conscientious objectors, the vast majority of vets with so-called "bad papers" are supposed to be entitled to benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs.
