Called to check on my claim. I do this every 4 months. I pointed out that the claims being reviewed moved from Sept 2014 to April 2013. She told me they did a audit of their inventory and found that they were farther behind than they thought. She said they were in the process of hiring more lawyers and judges. However, (my opinion not hers) with the hiring freeze that our leader Trump has done will screw us vets even more. Now they will not be able to hire anybody at the VA to help treat veterans and process claim sin a timely manner. That will put me at about 4 year wait at the BVA for my claim to get heard. I have waited 2.5 years now. Maybe in 2018 my claim will get done.
