EL PASO — Military veterans can run into a lot of red tape trying to get the benefits they are entitled to. That is why Texas Veterans Commission hosted the "Beating the VA Backlog" event in El Paso.
Claim counselors provided one-on-one support for veterans, family members and survivors.
There are more than 65,000 pending VA disability claims in Texas, and veterans are experiencing delays in receiving benefits.
