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!

It is time to get the corruption stopped in government as well as in the private sector. This will never make it to a national awareness because of political intervention.

My son stood strong and tall with men who's families are ilegal aliens, his platoon leader lost his life because his medic lost his legs and could not get to his leader. Platoon leader son of illegal aliens, medic my son, June 4 2012. Jerome my son or I would rip your lungs out for your comments about ilegal aliens, in our book if you are not native of the Americas from the tip of the artic circles North and South you are the alien.
