I just want to offer a glimmer of hope for all of you who are pulling your hair out trying to gather and file all of the necessary paperwork for A&A. We heard this week that my 90-year-old dad has been approved! What a wonderful Christmas it will be not having to wonder how much longer we'll have to wait. Just a tip: I filed Dad's claim online using the VONAPP system, and I believe it was easier than dealing with the paper form. You can work on the form, save it, and come back to it later. When you hit the submit button, you instantly receive a confirmation number and an address to send any additional documents to. (Currently there is a limit to the number and size of attachments allowed.) As your parent's representative, make sure you follow the instructions on the VONAPP welcome page by attaching form 21-22a (if not already on file with the VA) and the application signature page signed by your parent (the claimant). Thank you, Debbie! And good luck to all of you who are still waiting.
