Record pace for Board of Veterans Appeals hearings; reschedule options available | VAntage Point

The best and most important thing you can do to help the Board hold more hearings for more Veterans in line is to attend your hearing at the scheduled day and time. Currently, the Board schedules 1,000 hearings per week with more than 25 Veterans Law Judges scheduled every single day – but nearly 50% of these hearings go unheard.

With 20,000 hearings completed by August '21, the Board of Veterans Appeals is on pace to best its historical average of 16,000 annually.

Milwaukee VA: Tracing VA’s origins

When 60 Veterans first made their way onto the Milwaukee VA campus in 1867 and moved into existing farm buildings, things looked a lot different than today. The campus sprawled over 425 acres of rolling grass, hills and lakes. It is an honor that today’s modern-day Department of Veterans Affairs traces its roots back to these hallowed grounds. Little by little, year by year, and decade by decade, more buildings were added to meet the burgeoning need of Veteran health care. Thousands upon thousands of Veterans who called this place home have passed through these grounds -- from the Civil War to today’s military hospital that serves more than 64,000 Veterans annually. Our main hospital looks far different today than when it opened in 1966. All floors have been remodeled, and the facility now provides world-class cardiac, cancer and mental health services. Our recent changes include the Spinal Cord Injury Center, robotic surgery and new catheterization lab. These improvements support innovative, life-saving and life-changing care to Veterans of all ages and eras.

I'm really getting frustrated with the VA in Milw. I've been out of pain pills for one week now, tracking said they are waiting for the package. I called VA pharm. and some guy named Joel said there was nothing he could do and send out another order. Guess what nothing and I feel this Joel was pretty rude.
