FIGHT FOR YOUR COUNTRY, BUT YOU’RE ON YOUR OWN IF YOU GET DISABLED!

7 YEARS OF WAITING ON DISABILITY FROM VETERANS AFFAIRS!


It was a very sad situation that Gulf War veteran Korey Ray Wilson found himself in. He served in the US Navy from 1991 to 1994. He fought during the first Gulf War. But in 1992 he was walking and thought he took a step and fell on his face while serving Uncle Sam. It was a sign of a serious medical problem. Fast forward 15 years – now Mr. Wilson can’t walk. His doctors told him it’s the result of the highly controversial Gulf War syndrome. The Houston resident decided to apply for veterans disability benefits because he couldn’t work – but 7 years later he has been denied by the Houston Regional Veterans Affairs office over and over again. He is among the 600,000 plus veterans whose disability claims haven’t been processed by the Department of Veterans Affairs. Wilson is extremely patriotic and that’s why he can’t seem to understand why his country is not supporting him in this tough time. How tough? As a result of not being able to work he now lives in his friends car with his cat…He’s homeless. Wilson refuses to beg or ask for a hand out so he struggles to survive. He says he simply wants the government to fulfill its promise of taking care of those who fought for their country. What’s your feelings on this matter? Should the government do a better job in taking care of those who served their country? The Insite would like to hear from you!
