Good, it’s worked well for me on 3 different occasions already.

Now if we could just do away with income issues. I’m just barely qualified for treatment and meds as long as I pay the co-pays. Without it I can no way in hell afford my meds. Still fighting with them.
Thank you Mr.President,you just made this Old Vet’s day.
A solid step in the right direction.
That’s so good to hear.....thanks for posting....it’s one thing to hope things have changed for our Vets it’s another when they are saying it has.
If President Trump continues to focus on issues such as jobs and this one, 2020 will be a good year for him.
Agreed. Trump - UNLIKE so many before him - has demonstrated that he fully intends to keep his promises to vets.
Works for me! I love it!
NY Post says 500 VA employees, since Trump took over, have been fired.
God Bless him - doing his best to keep the promises made.
