VFW Testifies Before Presidential Commission on Care for America's Returning Wounded Warriors

WASHINGTON, April 23, 2007–VFW Executive Director Robert Wallace recently testified before the Presidential Commission on Care for America’s Returning Wounded Warriors with respect to the seamless transition.

The VFW is calling for changes to the disability-review process and how the military evaluates disabled military personnel.

"The VFW’s vision is that of one unified record," Wallace said. "When a man or woman signs their enlistment papers, an electronic file is created that stays with them, wherever they are transferred. This file should contain important personnel information, deployment information, but also be a medical record, indicating any illnesses or injuries the servicemember suffers," adding that the VFW then wants the file to be transferred to VA where it can be accessed quickly and routinely updated with later medical issues.

A seamless transition, Wallace said, is critical for the quick adjudication of any disability claims the individual may file. Read VFW testimony for seamless transition for returning wounded warriors

The Presidential Commission on Care for America’s Returning Wounded Warriors was set up after the disgraceful incidents at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, and intends to look at all aspects of health care and treatment for our wounded warriors.
