Where does this leave the Veterans who are seeking to have their cases reviewed and qualified? It leaves them in limbo; screwed again by the ineptitude of the bureaucracy at the VA!
Scott Davis, the whistleblower who first reported the problem of pending applications said the problem was that most of them were erroneously marked as incomplete because they called for an income test or were missing a military service record called DD214, which the VA specifically told applicants not to include!
