This is a new application process that is saving a lot of time. "The key to the process is for a veteran to submit
VA Form 21-526EZ and 21-527EZ and an easy-to-write certification letter stating the intent to apply for
compensation or pension benefits under the FDC program. For additional information or to file an FDC,
please contact the DAV National Service office in your state. Offices can be found at WWW.dav.org."
