Meet one of the thousands of veterans pushed into debt by VA mistake

DAYTON, Ohio — Veteran Rodger Zink felt betrayed by his own government when he found out in early 2017 that he owed the Department of Veterans Affairs about $15,000 even after he told the agency months earlier that he thought he was receiving benefits he shouldn’t be.

Zink, 35, of Fairborn, is one of thousands of veterans who have fallen into debt due to mistakes by the VA, the very agency designated to help them once they leave the armed forces. Veterans often rely on their VA benefits to pay for daily needs such as health care and house payments, so a sudden change can throw their lives into chaos, said Seth Gordon, director of the Veteran and Military Center at Wright State. https://www.stripes.com/news/veterans/meet-one-of-the-thousands-of-veterans-pushed-into-debt-by-va-mistake-1.535010
