Saturday EDIT 2: Not going to scan this one, but I got a letter in the mail today from the VA. They wanted to let me know that the per monthly rate for Chapter 30 Montgomery GI Bill has increased. It was dated six days before the letter I received yesterday.
I wonder how much money the VA wastes on redundant paper mailings? Shouldn't there be a list tracking the names of veterans? It should be a giant Excel sheet, and it should be updated to include whether the vet is on Chapter 30, 31, or 33. So, aside from the double mailing I received yesterday, which was received five fucking months after I got the first one, this giant Excel sheet would let the VA know that I don't need to know about the $67 increase to the obsolete Chapter 30 because I'm enrolled in Chapter 33!!
Imagine the savings on postage, envelopes, paper, and ink. That could be tens, or even a couple hundred thousand useless mailings. How much money would that save in a year? Taxpayer money just pissed down the shitter.
Is it time to reform?
