Closing Thought–02Apr19

Our veterans have to burden a lot on their shoulders…..they are looked up to as “heroes” whenever the need arises and ignored the rest of the time….they served this country honorably and the nation treats them horribly.

Our veterans have to deal with a VA that is inadequate for their needs……they try to live with PTSD unsuccessfully for many….and then I read this story…..

Inspectors with a government contractor found that veterans were harmed at Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) nursing homes in more than two dozen states, USA Today reported Thursday.

The inspections, conducted at 99 VA facilities, found problems resulting in “actual harm” to patients in 52 facilities, according to USA Today. In three facilities, inspectors found issues that put veterans’ health and safety in “immediate jeopardy.”

Eight nursing homes put veterans in harm and jeopardy, the newspaper reported, citing reports from the inspections conducted last year from April through December.

The facilities found to cause harm are in 25 states plus Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico.

This is shameful and will go mostly ignored….the MSM is as fickle as the people when it comes to our veterans…..

As a veteran I get pissed when I read these types of stories……because the people will remain silent and continue the pretense that the veterans actually matter.

A closing thought…..

  1. Sorry to hear that, chuq. If America wants to keep waging these numerous and pointless wars, then they have a responsibility to care for their service personnel when they return.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Exactly and few Americans will demand they get the proper care they richly deserve……..most Americans act like cowards when this issue is addressed….chuq
