Having been quick to criticize, I will give credit where it is due. After a nearly two-year struggle with the Veteran’s Administration, I reached out to Senator Murray’s office for help with my disability claim. One of her staff members, a veteran himself pursued my interests like the Marine he is. After contacting her office I received my initial check and back benefits in about two weeks, just in time for the holidays. Financial motivations aside having the designation and recognition as a disabled veteran was well earned and fought for, overseas, and then with the VA itself.
Having won my fight with the VA I am more determined than ever to help other veterans receive their benefits as well. Again thank you to Sen. Patty Murray for giving voice to one soldier.
