Re: Iraq/ VA hospitals

So many suffer because unthinking/ignorant people promulgate false information. Many recruiters "sold" military careers based on a "guaranteed" health care benefit for life, when in reality, it was always "space A", and even that dependent on government decisions that might downsize or close health care facilities. I had the less than enviable task of explaining this to those whose health care facilities were being closed in the mid Atlantic states. Not fun.

Cathy: My dad's 100% disability was service connected...a gunshot wound
to the knee in WWII, another gunshot wound to the same knee in Korea,
and a broken neck/back falling off an upper deck onto a flight deck of a
carrier...and although he did get priority service over non-service
connected vets, it may have amounted to the difference between sit down
and wait for 3 hrs. instead of 6...and admission into an inpatient bed
ahead of non-service connected vets. What really torqued me though is
that he lived his whole life believing that my mom would get a widow's
pension when he died...completely unaware of the fact that the benefit
had changed to include the stipulation that the vet must have died as a
direct consequence of the service connected disability...he died of
lung/bone cancer and therefore my mother got not one dime and at age 66
had to return to work after caring for my dad for the last few years of
his life.
