Strike force teams to target VA backlogs

Posted: Updated:

Perhaps the biggest issue and struggle facing returning veterans is the long wait to receive disability benefits from the U.S. bureau of Veteran's Affairs, the VA.

The state of Texas is confronting that issue with something called "strike force teams" to speed things up. It's administered through the Texas Veterans commission and the man who runs it recently testified before a congressional committee about it. His name is James Richman and he stopped by to talk about the problem and how to fix it.
