Re: Iraq/ VA hospitals


Actually, the priority at the VA has to do with "service connected disabilities". They a primarily tasked to care for those with medical problems incurred while in/related to military service - anything else is secondary.

I agree with your views on VA hospitals. Rank has little to do with it
though, but there is a major distinction placed on someone that gave their life
(retired) or someone that only put in a few years. There should not be, but
there is. Much has to do with economic status. Most veterans are able to hold
jobs, so have health insurance through their jobs.
Unfortunately, the veterans that were wounded badly enough...physically or
mentally....are the ones that are not able to hold jobs and are the ones that go
to the VA hospitals....especially the Vietnam Veterans.
