Why is the care of today’s Veteran more complicated and challenging than in years past?

Medical advances have saved the lives of countless Veterans who may have died in the past. However, those Veterans now face a lifetime with chronic disabilities. About 35 percent of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans file claims for disabilities, according to the VA. The claims filed are more complex, and they often cite multiple disabilities. In addition, an increasing number of Veterans who are receiving disability benefits reopen their claims because of chronic progress disabilities such as diabetes.
