Ask them when veterans got appear before a VA court system that refuses to seat jury trials that could prove their disability how they can get help for that issue. Seems veterans disabled from military service that a jury to decide whether they or the government telling the truth is not allowed. Veterans don't rate jury trials when the government has lied and wronged them.
