ST. LOUIS (KTVI) - The You Paid For It Team comes to the aid of an St Louis-area Army veteran in his battle with the Veterans Administration.

He's suffering a back disorder that resulted from years of compact jumps with the 82nd Airborne Division.

But the VA cut his benefits from $700 a month to $300 a month, saying that his back was getting better. The veteran is appealing but his appeal could take more than two years. Even the VA admits the system is unfair.
