IOM C-123 Report Makes Its Way Into Board of Veterans Appeals Decisions

IOM C-123 Report to VA
In January the Institute of Medicine C-123 Committee report was submitted to the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, and as we can see below, it now is being referenced by the Board of Veterans Appeals, veterans' advocates and board attorneys.

This is something I hadn't thought about...but I"m very glad that other veterans might find the IOM results, or any other part of our work these past four years, useful in their application for benefits.

Another thing I hadn't anticipated: This appeal was from a Vietnam-era Thailand AF veteran, so its interesting that somebody besides our own 2100 men and women post-Vietnam aircrew would benefit from the IOM report before any of us!
