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!

As a Combat Veteran with PTSD the VA has done everything to deny and delay my claims, 2 years and 8 days in appeal process and nothing being done, these are the reasons so many Veterans take their own lives, they feel the VA is turning their backs on the Veteran, its a shame but Illegal Imigrants get better health care than Veterans who served their Country on lower wages than the Median income and in a Combat zone none the less....

They are still "evaluating [my] claim" for my marriage. My husband and I were married two and a half years ago. Several of my friends have taken their lives since we've returned. If there's money for "Obamacare" then there is money for the VA. Our country needs to get its priorities straight.

PTSD is rampant with the young gentlemen also! If they would screen them when they return and have a follow up visit later maybe this could be detected and taken care of. They are so excited to be home that the few questions they are asked, of course they will lie so they aren't detained any longer from seeing their loved ones! Something has to be done....NOW!! Before we lose many more of our loved ones!

I volunteer for the VFW on the weekends that I'm not working. And I speak to vets that are hurt and should file a disability claim and most of them say give the money to someone worse off than me. I tell them. That every veteran who fought to save this country needs to file because that is the only way that Obama will look our way and see that their is a serious problem.

Something must be done about the lack of care given to those who have put their lives on the line to protect those who chose to stay behind and be spectators. And it makes me sick to here politicians and the news give there personal opinion on subjects that they have absolutly no idea

I agree with Richard , if you dont fight enough, you might be left behind.. :/ Just like my friend / client who is a II WW veteran and he never got paid from that. He is 88 years old now and they think he will die and don't pay. But the guy is coming to my Rejuvenation Program and he is doing really well and I want help hm get money he deserves.

EVEN THOUGH I DON'T SUPPORT THE WAR, there are some U.S soldiers who regret being involved in the injustice, and are actually victims of this illegal war in Iraq and Afghanistan. I don't know whether white house petitions would help solve the issue, but I'm just hoping for the best as usual. Please share this with as many people as possible. Your friends, relatives, everyone that you know. You don't have to be an American to get involved.

"At least 23,000 veterans (ex-soldiers) and service members have died by suicide, according to data reported in 2008 by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and the Department of Veterans Affairs. The Center for a New American Security titled, “Upholding the Promise: A Strategy for Veterans and Military,” says the president must confront two serious problems on veterans issues: rampant suicides and more than a million unprocessed veterans benefits claims, mostly filed by combat-wounded men and women who volunteered to fight for America during the two military campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan." https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/improvements-va-healthcare-system-effort-lower-rate-veteran-suicides/rwT90HWC.

Lets not forget Cold War Veterans and Peace time veterans that have injuries or disease that is service connected. The claims process back-log is a shame. It is really shameful and does not look very good on the Department of Veterans Affairs when a veteran can get Social Security Benefits faster than VA Compensation.

Salam Alaykum, Abdul, you are correct in that many eyes were opened too the deception which was the war in Iraq. There was some good to be gleaned from a bad situation, many of us through our contact with the people in Muslim countries discovered most are good moral people who simply are not like the main stream media portrays them. Many upon returning and realizing the truth behind the war and witnessing the horror, especially during the invasion when the heaviest use of air power and missiles occurred, simply were tormented by the fact they were used to perpetrate a lie and felt suicide was the only way to escape the guilt.

Let me tell you something I just posted a comment something like this refreshed and it was gone. So here's another one! If the government doesn't want to take care of our solders when they are done doing their dirty deeds then everyone in the military needs to take a whole day off lets see how quick they jump their coward buts and make it possible right now to be done. everyone in the military needs to take that day off. better yet take a whole week off I promise you the government would...

Let me tell you something I just posted a comment something like this refreshed and it was gone. So here's another one! If the government doesn't want to take care of our solders when they are done doing their dirty deeds then everyone in the military needs to take a whole day off lets see how quick they jump their coward buts and make it possible right now to be done. everyone in the military needs to take that day off. better yet take a whole week off I promise you the government would run around and act even more stupid than they already do. SOILDERS FIGHT BACK BY NOT FIGHTING BACK take a stand! SHOW THEM THAT IF YOU'RE GOING TO FIGHT THEIR DIRTY LITTLE LYING WARS THEN THEY NEED TO TAKE CARE OF YOU WHEN YOU GET BACK! I bet you if the ones that arn't fighting had to fight for one day all this would stop and they would really see what it's like. No they sit behind seats and think their the big dog. FIGHT BACK SOLDERS I WILL STAND WITH YOU! We are more than the government. If their not doing something right like this then we need to just show them how much their not doing it right. What are they going to do court martial for everyone that stands up. Good luck with that as you can already tell they don't have the proper personal. Stop letting them blow your horn AND BLOW THEIRS!

I am married to a man who seved his country and is in now a T-10 paraplegic. The burning pain is unbearable and his inability to feel like a total man is beyond pain. Suicide is a constant threat to his mental health. PTSD is on going and part of our lives. Please take this issue seriously.
