Veterans' Groups Concerned About Interpretation of the Law

With last year’s passage of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), veteran’s groups believed it would be easier for wounded soliders to receive prompt and efficient treatment for their wounds because of the new government system for rating and evaluating injuries.

Sources close to the issue now say that the government’s interpretation of the act may limit care for some wounded veterans. The main issue is the definition of “combat-related operations” which may exclude certain individuals due to the loose interpretation of the term. Veteran’s groups are hoping that a clearer and broader definition of combat-related operations can be agreed upon so that more individuals can receive the care they need.
