A field examiner was assigned to my fathers' case 85 days ago and I still haven't been contacted for an initial examination. I called the case manager at the Regional office today and was told that a new field examiner was appointed on July 18th but the case manager had no idea whatsoever when I would be contacted. I asked why was a new field examiner assigned to the case and I was told that it was because the VA made an error in their paperwork and now they have corrected it. Lovely! They mailed a letter to me at my correct home address tellling me that the field examiner went to my last known Florida address and was unable to contact me. Of course, not only did the field examiner not call to set up an appointment in the first place but he/she also went to an address that wasn't even mine ... EVER . It was an address that was non-existant at all! So, now we wait ... again. And because of their carelessness a stupid mistake was made and it's the veteran that pays the price. I'm drafting a letter to my Senator but I'm not sure what good it will do. Talking to the VA in Florida is like talking to the wall.
