Retired Navy Vet


Dear President"
I am very frustrated! My husband is a 20 year retired vet who now has leukemia. I have a rx for a shower chair that I cannot get because medicare no longer covers said item. It's now a convenience not a necessity.We are on a "fixed income" & I cannot pay the cost of the chair.
This country of ours does not give the respect or help that the vets need. If you can't help us no one can.

Respectfully yours.
Ann M.Uorgan
