New Online Database: U.S. Veterans: VA Disability Database by State or ZIP Code
From the Lake Wylie Pilot:
McClatchy [news publisher] analyzed a Department of Veterans Affairs database that details each of the 3.2 million veterans receiving monthly disability payments. You can search by state or zip code to see the number of veterans on the VA’s disability rolls broken down by period of war.
You can also see additional detail about the number of veterans with the highest disability rating of 100, as well as the number of veterans with key mental and physical disabilities (post traumatic stress disorder, depression, tinnitus, and back strain). Finally, you can see the average size of the veterans’ monthly disability compensation check, by state or zip code.
