Final Decision

He had long sought
higher disability benefits.
A Vietnam veteran
who had been denied an increase
in disability payment for years
will now receive that increase,
and back payments.
The 65-year old first submitted a claim
in 2004 asking for an increase
in his compensation.
previous rulings went against him.
He’s amazed
at receiving the letter.
He feels sorry for the people
who have not been able to do
what he was able to do.
He developed Type II diabetes
many years after his service
because of exposure
to Agent Orange.
Veterans Affairs seemed
to have interpreted
things differently
from his doctors...
until now.
