On this Veterans Day, many vets are still face long waits for their disability claims to be decided.
Even though the government says the backlog has been cut by more than a third since March, thousands are still waiting a year or more. There were over 600,000 claims backed up last spring; the head of the Department of Veterans Affairs says that's down to 400,000 now.
