If one is 100 percent VA disabled and is getting VA disability, can one also draw social security disability?

It is possible, but getting it actually depends on the disability. Even with VA 100% disability the Social Security Administration still has to evaluate the disability and determine if it meets their criteria for disabled. If they decide that the condition is disabling then they will pay benefits based on earnings history. This page has a pretty good discussion:

Get your butt down to The Social Security Administration and turn in your paperwork you could get up to a year in back payments if I'm not mistaken.

If you have enough earnings credits you are eligible but you have to qualify through their process of qualification.
