Hundreds of veterans lined up outside the regional office of the Veterans Administration in San Diego today. They were there to pick up an advance on their GI Bill checks.
The VA is behind on processing about 30,000 applications for benefits under the new GI Bill. As a stop gap measure, the agency offered to issue emergency checks of up to $3,000 to vets who have already started college and need the money to cover rent and food.
Because it’s so much more efficient to issue 2 checks instead of just writing the checks they’re waiting for???
And these goobers acting like they’re delivering the Publishers Clearing House prizes – standing there with big smiles while our Veterans stand in line like they’re waiting for the soup kitchen…………….
