VA Health Care from a Veteran


Sir, PLEASE let me help correct the problems the VA have in health care. As a combat Viet Nam Veteran who is classified as a 100 per cent disabled veteran who has been in the VA health care system since 1969 and has suffered both good and bad in the system is qualified to judge the system. I can bring a unique perspective to the system. I am in the United States Marine Corps as a retired Sgt. no. 2451589. You can check on me through that number. I am 63 years old. I will volunteer my time to help other veterans who need the proper care. In all the years I have gone to VA facilities I have had only 3 VA workers that have actually cared for me and gone out of their way to make sure I have had the best care that I could get. I was actually a patient of the Filipino nurse in the 1970's who killed some of her patients in Ann Arbor, Mi. To me she was a great nurse. Sir, I beg of you to let me help. Investigate me if you want and you will see that I speak the truth 100 per cent of the time. I know this may sound disjointed. Please let me help the VA and my fellow veterans and your administration.
