But, I also realized VA would pretend it did not get my question. So I did a screeenshot of the window, saved it, then broadcast it on the mail list as well as the House Veteran Affairs subcommittee. After a bit the moderator said 1, questions had come in by then so I knew my question was buried.
Decided to be more obvious in a 2nd question so that the first was answered. Saved that screenshot as well. Not going to let this go now its on the Sec of VA's desk. October 2nd, I got a email from VA stating they got my question and I might get a answer back. OK, must be automated reply to say maybe because my question isnt a vague self serving one.
Mine covers a major failure of VA over 10 years, and the need to provide better ways of dealing with GWI healthcare and benefits issues.

Yet, nearly a year has gone by and things remain status quo in the worst ways possible. Other than the Chairman and 6 members being removed silently.
