My C-123 retroactive compensation idea – shot down in flames!

Hey, I can't crash yet. Need another half hour
for an AFTP!
Well, that didn't go too well. I'd proposed a method whereby VA and the Air Force leadership would use backdated exposure injury Line of Duty determinations to satisfy statutory requirements for Title 38 "veteran" status.

"Sorry, but no
" was today's response at noon from the VA.

VA leadership had their hearts in the right place, but had to turn us down. Still, we've got the principal goals for the last five years' work well-met: our people get VA benefits and disability compensation dated from June 19 2015 forward.

Half a loaf. But the best half! Sorry guys, but that's all we can push for at this time.
