Veteran Administration Discoveries

Recent News Reports regarding the delayed care of Veterans and coverup is more of the same from an Administration that is at least incompetent and perhaps quite a bit worse than that. None of these stories have been verified as of yet, and I take no responsibility regarding the accuracy nor the accusations in them. The alternative media will do their job uncovering what appears to be a most virulent evidence of wrong doing and the main stream will continue to ignore or obfuscate the truth. The investigation begins here with YOU in the belief that Justice, no matter the consequence MUST prevail. Godspeed.

First Person Account via Interview:

Bob is USMC early Foxtrot Vietnam veteran 1961- 1964 (before Agent Orange) and has been under Long Beach VA care for 16 years where he has had same Doctor for 14 years. He has had open heart surgery. His 1st visit to VA was 17 years ago, as he could not get coverage due to a pre-existing condition. He has been treated for diabetes, high blood pressure, but no condition as a result of his war duty. He claims 50% of his co-veterans complain about the delays in treatment and medications. Emergency treatment is a triage system,which means the most serious conditions are treated first. Bob’s friends treated for Agent Orange are now experiencing symptoms of diabetes, high blood pressure and according to Bob, are receiving satisfactory treatment at the VA.

    The quality of care at VA hospitals is not in question. It is the wait time to see a doctor for evaluation and proper treatment protocol. Your first person witness does not address the problem within the system. Once again, quality of care is NOT the issue.

    The issue with VA hospitals is not quality of care. It is wait times experienced by veterans to actually see a doctor and be evaluated for. Proper treatment protocol. Your eye witness testimonial does not address this issue. Once again, the issue is NOT quality of care, it is excessive wait times for treatment of serious illnesses.
    Were You to follow me on twitter, you would see that I agree with you. The volume of info. on VA Scandal is overwhelming. You read what was supposed to be the lone endorsement of mult. accounts in an article. It is more like a BOOK

  3. I am just one veteran. I know that this is just one story of one veteran, but I feel it’s worth telling. I am not a combat vet. I served between wars, although I did enlist at the end of one and, therefore, the Department of Veterans Affairs (V.A.) counts me as being, “not in country”, but a vet of that war era, just the same.

    I am also a female vet, which in most situations makes me an “invisible” veteran to most people, since I don’t wear a hat or other apparel to tell people that I served. It’s not that I am not proud of my 12 years of honorable service (can you believe we actually had 12 years without war in this lifetime?), it’s just that I don’t like wearing a hat. Anyway, male veterans can be “invisible”, too, if they aren’t wearing their service on their sleeve, so to speak.

    Like many veterans, I have had some hard times in my civilian life. It can be very tough for someone who became part of the military (Army, in my case) family right out of high school, used to having all of my basic needs met by my mom and then all of my basic needs being met by the Army for my first decade of adulthood, and then to suddenly be on my own as a 30-something single mom, trying to learn how to live in this world without the support network I had always known. There were other circumstances, as well, unrelated to my military service (and not related to drugs or alcohol), that created problems for me and made it difficult for me to have a stable life. There were several months when I was “homeless”, living out of a car with my 6-year-old daughter and sometimes in a tent (when I had the money for a campsite). I lived off of peanut butter sandwiches so that I could buy my daughter a hot meal every day. She started the first grade while we were living in a shelter for single moms.

    What does any of this have to do with the V.A.? If I had not registered with the V.A. medical care system and been issued a V.A. ID card and gotten the help that I did from them, I would, I truly believe, not be alive today. I was about as despondent as any human can be before they take the drastic step of ending their suffering, once and for all.

    Every time I have walked (or been wheeled) into a V.A. Emergency Room, in any of the numerous states that I have lived in or traveled through over the past 12 years, and showed my V.A. ID card, I have been cared for that day. Not only have they always treated the physical need that brought me there, but they have always, always asked me about my emotional health and my financial situation and given me whatever help I needed – so much help – help I never knew was even available until they offered it to me. Not only that, but the V.A. hospitals and clinics are the only places I’ve ever been where I am treated like a respected veteran. They don’t ask me when I served or where. They just know that I did and they THANK ME! I thank them, in return, for all that they do for veterans. Yes, they have some problems, but the problems are logistical and can be fixed. The people, by and large, are not the problem. They are amazing. And, even though I am just one veteran, I know that I am not the only one because every time I go to the V.A. I am in the company of hundreds of other vets who are being treated with the same level of care and respect that I am getting. If there were no more V.A. hospitals, I would be completely lost and alone. They make me feel good about myself and have become my extended family.

    The government needs to address the problems of the V.A. so that they have the ability to treat all of the veterans with the same wonderful care that I have gotten from them since 2002, but don’t tear down my V.A. – they saved my life and gave my daughter the opportunity to have her mom bugging her for the last 12 years.

    I believe in the VA Surge and ask that everyone go to http://bit.ly/VASURGE and sign the petition and ask everyone they know to do the same. Our veterans need our help.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this.
