As a veteran who had to, suddenly, partake of VA benefits let me first thank those of you who seem to think we veterans are something special or unique. We are not. We are some of you, but you just lacked the opportunity; we are your fathers, mothers, aunts, uncles, grandfathers, granmothers and so many others who only saw a duty and answered that need.

As a veteran who had to, suddenly, partake of VA benefits let me first thank those of you who seem to think we veterans are something special or unique. We are not. We are some of you, but you just lacked the opportunity; we are your fathers, mothers, aunts, uncles, grandfathers, granmothers and so many others who only saw a duty and answered that need. Secondly, I referred to my sudden need to enter the VA healthcare system, what an emotionally traumatic eperience to go from one who takes care of himself and others, to one who now has to rely on others just to tie his shoes! Then to be victimized by those you had to entrust yourself to.. There is NO adequate excuse such as faulty computer systems, or lack of oversight! They just didn't CARE! It was been said there are many rooms in the heavenly mansion. I only hope there are special rooms reserved for schmucks like these...in hell!
Better yet, if there is true karma, maybe they'll return to earth as "bad guy" targets in SEAL Team 6's Shooting house so they can learn what it's like to try dodging bullets!

This fraudulent practice must stop! There must be enough caring and honest people to look after our brave Veterans. Where are they?

Mental Health Care when available is minimal. And the co-pays are 50 bucks every time you go. I live on 15000 year on SSDI. My living expenses take all I have. So I don't go to therapy when I can't save the co-pay.

The feds are not taking care of our troops when they come back from war, they should have insurance for them and there families, and they should be given a departure bonus to get them back on there feet, a lot of vets were just turned out with nothing, it is so sad that the ones protecting the us is getting put on the back burner there giving billions of dollars to the rich and nothing to the poor vets.

Our Veterans have gone through more than we can even imagine. Some will live with grueling memories for the rest of their lives. They have fought for us now let us fight for them.

This is an outrage. There are too many problems with people in charge of money, that are mishandling and getting a way with it!

Our vets never ask who , or why they say when lets go. And they go as family our family. Lets give back a little of what they give every day. Lets show our vets that we do respect them , and tryto show them how much we love , and appreciate them, and what they give every day for us.
