I don’t know why anyone is surprised about trouble at some VA facilities. We have World War II and Korean War veterans passing at a quick rate, many using VA faculties in their final days. Every Vietnam veteran with boots on the ground was exposed to Agent Orange, possible prostate cancer, millions, and we’re all at that “age!”
And now we have many thousands of men and women who served in Afghanistan and Iraq using the VA system at an unprecedented rate because of a good campaign specifically aimed at getting new veterans to file claims for “service connected” injuries upon return from deployment, to get in the system! And then add in for bad measure corrupt VA employees endangering veterans through their greed!
