Re: Proof the VA does not give a fuck about vets
Been using the VA since '96 and have never had a problem.

You're lucky. They had my husband over medicated when we got married. 47 different medications. He is on 6 now. And I throw a fit, however nicely, when they try and screw with them. They work, they need to leave it alone.
Our head of the VA here is a tool.

For the last 5 years I have watched this vet go from being old, to being older and hard to walk, so much so his son built his wheelchair because as of the last time I was at the VA in Feb., the man was not "approved" for the apparatus. Last 3, I've watched a young guy waiting on getting a prosthetic leg because his got blown off.

My grandfather is a WWII vet. It took from 1946 until 2010 to get a piece of shrapnel out of his ass. It wasn't a particularly complicated surgery, he was 90 when it happened and had no complications from it. The excuse was "well, we don't know what it'll do to you". Same excuse he got for 74 years.

Not the same regions. I live in Tennessee, granddad is in California.

My aunt spent 14 years getting Grandpa's surgery. I hate to tell you the amount of time I spend on a phone if my husband needs care, and the sheer amount of people I have to talk to to even get anywhere. Phone, in person...doesn't matter.

Whatever you think of the wars, these men signed up and part of that deal was health care. It is not right an old man can't walk because he's older than Moses and can't get a chair, nor is it right that a young man can't walk because he can't get a leg. These things were part of the bargain of being the cannon fodder. They need to fulfill that promise.

We can let people that don't work go to the emergency room for the sniffles, surely we can find the funds for the vets.

Sorry. The VA makes me ranty on a good day.
