I always say that nobody treats veterans worse than the VA. I am a patient in the VA system and I cringe with every interaction I face with the VA, knowing it is going to result in unnecessary stress and will most likely lead to a dead-end. What’s not broken with the VA system? That is what I would like to know.
I would welcome the opportunity to shed light on the real workings of the VA system from a veteran’s perspective. I am fortunate that I am able to raise my voice and fight for my rights, but I have great concern for those veterans who aren’t able to speak up. Some veterans are simply too ill or elderly to speak against the mistreatment they endure. I would like to be their voice. Changes must be made immediately. There is no good reason veterans should be experiencing what we are by the hands of those who are put in place to care for us.
