Jun 25, 2014 - Leaders of the U.S. House and Senate are hoping for a quick deal to fix the Department of Veteran's Affairs, although questions remain in dealing with the implications.
Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., delivered opening remarks at the U.S. Senate and House Veteran’s Affairs conference committee meeting June 24.
Rockefeller, former chairman of the committee, said in his remarks the situation with the Veterans’ Affairs is an all too similar scene.
“When I became chairman of the Veterans Affairs Committee in 1993, I resolved that we would do all that we could to assist veterans who had been neglected or forgotten,” Rockefeller said in his statement. “After I heard from veterans suffering from undiagnosed illnesses related to their service in the Persian Gulf, I called for the committee to hold the first hearing on Gulf War Illness.
“It was a long fight, and one that is still ongoing,” Rockefeller added.
Rockefeller said veterans, at war time, were told their ailments were “all in their heads.”
He said every war has unanticipated health care costs and in every war – veterans must live on with those consequences.
“We will do no know what truly causes Gulf War Illness,” he said. “But we do know now that Gulf War Illness is a real disease and, because of the Persian Gulf War Veterans Benefits Act, veterans today are able to be treated for their undiagnosed illnesses.” read more>>>
