I have had the pleasure of speaking with Veterans who have served in the Vietnam War, Operation Desert Storm, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Operation Enduring Freedom. I have also spoken with Veterans who have served our country, but not in a theater of war. Personally, I am the Spouse of a Disabled Army Veteran who served in Operation Desert Storm.
I find one common theme when speaking with Veterans: frustration with the #VA system. These men and women put their lives on the line for our country, but when they get out, they are treated like second rate citizens. Many of them end up feeling thrown away.
Things need to change, and with the #NewVA, our Veterans need to be treated with the respect they deserve from the VA system. They shouldn't feel like trash by the very government they fought for.
#DearVAI am a wife and caregiver of an #OIF/OEF combat veteran. For that I am so grateful.
Thank you for your support, without which, we would most definitely be floundering,
