They may be disabled and not able to work, or have psychiatric and mental conditions, such as PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder).

The Department of Veteran Affairs has laws that govern them as well. According to the Executive Order 12866, the public has a right to participate in the regulatory process. Before issuing a ruling on a proposed policy, each agency is to inform those who will be affected by the policy, when it is feasible to do so. A response to the proposal is required to be made within 60 days of notification. Once I were to submit a notification within that time frame, the VA would have to consider my views, as well as others who submitted what they thought of the proposal. It would then be a waiting period, because they have done what...
