TAKING THE VA TO COURT. The BBC reports veterans are suing the VA over denied mental health treatment and disability pay. This is more evidence that the VA is too understaffed (despite the fact that they are leaders in post traumatic stress disorder treatment) to deal with the influx of former soldiers suffering from PTSD. It will be interesting to see how the courts deal with such a case. If they throw it out, the only recourse is to put pressure on Congress to pass legislation which would increase funding for disability pay and treatment for veterans with PTSD.
