Veterans have made the ultimate sacrifice in representing country and fellow citizens. When they come home, they should have no problems at all. "At All." No problems finding a job or having a successful career that allows them to live their lives in prosperity and peace. If that is not happening, and it is not, then we are not being as good to them as they were/are to Us.
Instead we hear story after story about their plight in getting healthcare in a timely manner. Why is that? TheHill has written an article about a dedicated Marine Corp Reservist of 8 years, studying to be a Doctor, who wanted to do his clinicals at VA hospitals. He was denied. You have to read why.
The Veterans administration has been noted as having a host of issues centered around management and service. When it comes to service, Doctor shortages, top of the list. And because of this, the article states, that any given time, thousands of veterans, are waiting more than 1 month for care. This article is a good read with good information.
