Arlington, VA – Today we have launched a new web video titled “Mr. President, Leadership Matters.” This call-to-action web video (runtime :31) calls on President Obama to stop making excuses and start delivering results to fix the claims backlog at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and to relieve Secretary Eric Shinseki of his leadership position at the department.
Military commanders are not allowed to fail for four years and keep their job. Nor should Secretary Shinseki. It’s time for new VA leadership, and a bold vision for reform. CLICK HERE TO WATCH.
CVA is working to help spread the word among the veterans community about opportunities with ACP. To get things rolling, we have a special offer for CVA friends and followers.
ACP has reserved slots in their mentoring program for the first 25 people who apply online and enter the keywords “Concerned Veterans” in the box marked “How did you hear about ACP?”

Four years ago, both President Obama and VA Secretary Shinseki vowed to fix the VA disability claims backlog. Instead, it has increased by 2,000% — and is projected to soon reach one million veterans. A tragic milestone.
It is time for the White House to stop making excuses and start delivering results. Only Presidential leadership can end the #MillionVetBacklog. We urge the President to act now.
The Department of Veterans Affairs is failing our veterans – plain and simple. Despite years of promises, over 903,000 disability and compensation cases are pending (headed toward 1 million), with 70% backlogged for more than 125 days.
The backlog has increased by 2,000% since 2009. Utterly unacceptable.

Numbers spun by the department to feign change aren’t going to fix the VA’s endemic failures. Only urgent and dynamic transformation will. The backlog in claims processing represents real men and women with serious needs who aren’t being served, after they have fought and sacrificed on behalf of our nation. Their stories are heartbreaking.
The VA culture needs to adapt to the 21st-century needs of those it serves—by using 21st-century technology and solutions.Please read our latest op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, click HERE: http://bit.ly/PclXtC
