Dear editor:
This is an open letter to the Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs:

Saturday was Christmas; my only wish goes out to every single disabled veteran in OUR country, including myself, who is going through the most degrading, disrespectful, inconsiderate, hopeless, begging, condescending appeal process by the Appeals Management Center and the Board of Appeals.

It is very sad and a national disgrace how ALL veterans have to endure this extreme degree of total disrespect and suffering, including their families — when we morally earned our financial benefits!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to ALL veterans!

Sincerely,
Linda Warren
