The VA is an expert at complicating things to the point that the average person has difficulty understanding the processes without the help of a VSO or, after a decision, an attorney. VSOs can assist during the filing of a claim, but it takes an attorney who is accredited in VA law to understand the intricacies of the VA legal system. Requests for Reconsideration are a perfect example of how the VA has created a legal system that is unique. See our Video Blog on Appeal v. Reconsideration.
The VA defines a mentally incompetent person as one who because of injury or disease lacks the mental capacity to contract or to manage his or her own affairs, including disbursement of funds without limitation.

Our Tissue Injury and Regenerative Medicine Program Management Office is tasked with a nearly impossible acquisition mission: to restore form, function and appearance to the wounded Warfighter post-catastrophic injury. The development costs are high, the programs are risky, the timelines are long, the commercial market is small and an enterprise-wide requirement is, to say the least, challenging to write. For our team, this is where innovation, opportunity and possibility thrive. Our Service Members are counting on us to be as innovative in our problem-solving battle as they are on the front lines, protecting and defending our freedoms.
