2. Claims Summit Draws a Crowd: VFW participated in a claims summit held by House VA Committee Chairman Bob Filner (D-CA).  More than 50 witnesses discussed problems, ideas and potential solutions to help the disability claims process.  Overhauling the veterans' benefit delivery system is the number one priority goal of the VFW.  We have asked VBA to improve their process by enhancing training and quality, improving IT infrastructure, and demanding a total commitment from leadership to accurately adjudicate claims the first time.  For a list of VFW's 2010 legislative priority goals, go to http://www.vfw.org/PR/Legislative/2010PriorityGoals%20PROOF.pdf.
