Thank you for your son’s and your service to our country.
I get angry when I read comments on Freepr how the VA is ‘babying” vets. We need an administration that puts its money where its mouth is.And a country that demands the BEST care. Waiting lists for residential programs, staff shortages at the Va are outrageous.
Its easy to say “oh, they won’t come or comply with treatment.” That’s blaming the victim. Lets look at the services we do offer vets: are they the best? are they adequate?
The first psychiatrist they sent him to fell asleep while he was trying to explain his pain.
Exactly how do you comply with that. And do you want to go back the second time & have to start over like it was the first time again! And the second appt isn’t for 3-6 wks. What are you supposed to do in between.
I just want to shout, WHO’s IN CHARGE HERE? Really no one. Sad, sad, sad.
I’m guessing we can expect much the same for the general population in the future.
My dad thought my future husband was a hippie, long hair, bell bottoms, guitar player in band and we’d never stay married. It will soon be 44 yrs, 4 children & 10 G’children. I think he was just a hippie wanna be!
