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!

March forward: http://www.answercoalition.org/march-forward/.
In 2008, veterans and active-duty service members who had been seasoned activists and leaders in the movement against the Iraq war joined together to form March Forward! Our aim is to unite all those who have served and who currently serve in the U.S. military, and who want to stand up for our rights and for that which is right! http://www.answercoalition.org/march-forward/

The Va needs to stop playing the political game with us veterans and give us the help we need, how can the Va not have enough money when they keep hiring Va police, I guess they do that to control and scare us veterans, well I'm not scared of no Va cop your any other LEO we both wear a uniform and took the same oath, the powers that be start the wars and us veterans go fight, while they play golf and tell us how to fight and force shitty gear on us, hell they won't even let their children go...
