Problems At The VA Hospital For Years:

I'm a Vietnam Veterans 68/69 as far as the problems at the VA hospital this have been going on for years as far as docking the books this information is sent up the change of command every Monday to the top administrators that's how they receive their bonus. There's a book called The Veteran's Survival Guide/How To File and Collect on VA Claims(Second Edition) written by John D. Roche a former military officer and Vietnam Veterans whom after he retired started working for the VA but left because he saw all the wrong stuff that was going on so he wrote this book about it to help all veterans to be better in formed and how to claim their benefits in a timely manner. All veterans and politicians who is trying to blame the current secretary for president for this mess this secretary and president based on what they inherited has done a good job in helping veterans read this book and all of you will see what really was happening at the VA. You get this book at Barnes and Noble or Borders it's a wonderful and informatics book. I learned a lot from Mr. Roche book and applause him for leaving the VA and trying to help his fellows veterans with their problems. This problem has been there since the Vietnam War the waiting time. Get the book my fellow veterans and tell your elected representative to get it and read it and learn the real deal about why things are the way they are now. Thanks and welcome guys. Peace.
