Whenever the system allows benefits to veterans who suffered injuries while playing high school football (which is allowable), a backlog of claims will exist ("VA is failing its veterans," May 20). Congress should put a halt to the unscrupulous ones who game the system and then maybe, just maybe, the backlog would diminish to some extent.
