Re: word from Iraq


Ceres,
I know nothing of military hospitals, but my father has been in and out of
VA hospitals since WWII.  He appreciates the services they provide and has
never complained.  My only complaint was that he needed eye surgery, but he
had to wait 2 extra years to meet some sort of criteria they had before
they'd do it.  He has few options; sort of take it or leave it.  But they've
been good to him.

VA services vary state to state.  In Indiana, as a child of a disabled
veteran, 2/3 of 8 semesters of my college tuition were paid for.  I believe
only one other state offered something like this.  In recent years, though,
many veterans' services are being cut, hospitals are closing.  I hope this
pace does not continue.

Kitty
