The 110th and 111th Congresses have been incredible ones for Veterans.  Major improvements have been made in everything from claims processing to health care to services for all veterans no matter what era.  Attached [PDF] is a short synopsis of the work accomplished on behalf of veterans from 2007 until the present.  Of particular interest is the work these two Congresses have accomplished in addressing the significant shortfalls in all veterans benefits.  $53 billion in FY 2010 alone is going to improve medical care, increase funding for claims processing to help eliminate the backlog of claims, and improve the VA infrastructure.
