The verification of dependents form I filed all this time's missing a signature. And they need a copy of my middle daughters' birth certificate.

Nowhere, in all the masses of correspondence, mail, email, internet, and phone, with the VA, over the last year and a half, was this EVER mentioned to me. I have asked dozens of times if they needed anything else. If there was anything I could do. If they had my current mailing address, email, and phone numbers. Anything. I have checked the status of my claim at least monthly, for almost two years. Not a word. And now I find out it's been held up all this time because of a missed signature on a form somewhere.


I can only suggest working closely with your local Disabled American Veterans. They seem to have an inside line to the VA, one that I have foolishly ignored for years, feeling that I should be able to handle this on my own.

To the many, many others who have served, and are being summarily ignored by the Administration, don't give up.
