We will not let our Veterans languish without hope for service-connected disabilities resulting from their service. (then-Secretary Shinseki, August 2010)
C-123 veterans have not only been "languishing," but have been actively opposed in our seeking medical care for proven exposures. ("We cannot permit C-123 claims." "We have to draw the line somewhere." - VA Public Health Post Deployment Health)
VA has even redefined exposure to its own purposes to prevent exposure claims, and disregarded obligations repeated three times in the Federal Register to treat all veterans exposed to military herbicides with presumptive service connection.
