I had to go through the VA to get my disability rating after being an officer in the navy for 10 years. I have always dreaded going to the VA hospitals, because of the sad shape of the patients and the reputation. My experiences during this time have been mixed. 18 years later my experiences when I have to deal with the VA is still mixed. I think the biggest room for improvement would be the removal of all the red tape and make the regulations smarter not more voluminous. Everyone wants the best candidates for the job, but how do you attract them.
