Veterans Day

This Veterans Day, President Obama focused on the need to continue working to eliminate the backlog of benefits claims affecting the Department of Veterans Affairs. In his address at Arlington National Cemetery, he pledged, “We’re going to keep reducing the claims backlog… so you can get the benefits that you have earned and that you need, when you need them.” According to Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki, the backlog is expected to be completely eliminated by 2015.
