We Must Continue to Make Veteran Benefits First-Rate (Rep. Bob Filner)

The charge of the Veterans’ Disability Benefits Commission was arduous and daunting – to examine the way our benefits systems operate and to provide recommendations on how to make the delivery of these benefits and services work better, in a way that represents the tremendous sacrifices that our men and women in uniform have made.  Our men and women should not get first class weapons to fight, only to receive third-class benefits after fighting.  We must continue on a path to making the benefits provided to our veterans first-rate and uncompromisable.
