Customer: I have discussed this with a veteran organization and Viet Nam Vets of America keep telling me they do not have the man power to resolve 3 appeals!
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: I have had 3 legal companies to attempt, but still no success. My health continues to get worse, worse.
