Alternate Title: Serial No. 113-29: DOD and Department of Veteran Affairs Collaboration to Assist Service Members Returning to Civilian Life, Joint Hearing with HASC [House Armed Services Committee] Before the Committee on Veterans' Affairs, House of Representatives, One Hundred Thirteenth Congress, First Session, July 10, 2013

This is the July 10, 2013 hearing on "DOD and VA [Department of Veteran Affairs] Collaboration to Assist Service Members Returning to Civilian Life," held before the U.S. House Committee on Armed Services and the U.S. House Committee on Veterans' Affairs. From the opening statement of Jeff Miller: "We are going to jointly review the collaborative efforts of the DoD and VA, as it pertains to servicemembers and their transition from active duty, to civilian life. A year ago, we were privileged to have both Secretaries Panetta and Shinseki at the witness table, and both of them testified at great length regarding the progress VA and DoD were making in several key areas. And what I would like to do this morning first is to revisit those areas in my opening statement. First, the progress made in developing an integrated electronic health record. Secondly, the progress that has been made in reducing the wait times associated with VA disability claims, which necessarily does involve cooperation from DoD in the transfer of records." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Frank Kendall and Stephen W. Warren.
