Why not have vouchers so that veterans can get health care at ANY hospital in our country. They deserve the best care; tax payers pay for it, and maybe they should just be gifted into the private sector. That might save us lots of money and get veterans better care. Just sayin'

It has been suggested before and is a great idea, in my opinion. If a VA is overcrowded, why not allow a vet the option to seek civilian healthcare?

If there's one memory I have never forgotten It is my time over in Vietnam.9 Yr.Old kid. If I still remember those years, I can relate to those young Brothers going thru it now. They have not really took care of us. Took years of B.S. to even get a look at what the whole experience has done to our generation. Please don't allow them to do it again. You have my support.

We owe our veterans the very best- not are wounds are visible. My son was killed in action in Iraq, but I know that he was disillusioned by the war. He may have needed help dealing with this when he came home, I would hope that as much effort to help him at the time would have been available to him as the efforts were to save his live in Iraq.

I am a veteran myself & also work for the va in Poplar Bluff mo... we don't have wait lists. You CANT blame just the VA. If a veteran is in crisis they WILL be seen.

Not everywhere. I personally have been waiting to get in to CBT treatment for PTSD for two years. My husband, also a veteran, repeatedly requested one-on-one therapy and was ignored. There have been numerous occasions in which I needed to see a physician and was told that it would takes weeks even months in some cases where it was a matter of urgency (broken tail bone, torn tendon, bad medication reaction, etc.).

My friend Ryan died three months in to a six month waiting list to get in to mental health. Popular Bluff, MO, has a much smaller population than VA's in metropolitan areas who are completely swamped with patients and drastically under-funded. No one here is blaming the VA. We are simply asking for the federal government to stop the budget cuts to mental health and to instead increase funding for VA healthcare so that additional mental health and medical providers can be hired. There are simply not enough medical and mental health professionals to accommodate the high number of patients in many areas.

Glad to do this for all of our Men and Women who served in the Military... It is terrible how they make the Vets wait to see the doctors for appointments for anything.... My Daughter is a Disabled Vet from the U.S. Navy and you would think they would help her much faster, That is just a joke....... Please help however you can, and SOON!

I am a mom of a veteran, I can attest to the long wait times over 3 months for primary care and wait times up to 6 months if you need a specialist if they even approve it. It is time to let those know that are in charge of our VA system that they are NEGLECTING our VETERANS and something needs to be done about it!
