This I feel is a preview of what is in store for us with Barry's Death Care.
I have been going to the VA for hemorrhoids. I need to have surgery to fix them. I go to the VA Medical Center in Battle Creek, MI. That is about 20 miles away. They can't do the surgery.
The next place is in Ann Arbor. That is about 100 miles away. The place is huge. They can't do the surgery as they don't have a surgeon.
Where do I have to go, Detroit. That is 150 miles away.
Now I have a little hospital 4 miles away in my hometown. But no, it can't be done there because it is not a Veteran's Administration Hospital. There are three other hospitals within 20 miles of home. But again I can't use any of them as they are not VA.
This is what one gets for being a Veteran using the VA.
So right now to do the procedure that means two trips to Detroit for 600 miles of travel. If It could be done in my hometown, it would be a 16 mile trip. So I have to travel over 37 times as far. That doesn't sound very "green" now does it?
One more story. Friday, I had a quick meeting with my Commander from Iraq 10 years ago. He is now a Lieutenant Coronel in the Guard and just got back from his third activation. He told me that three of his Soldiers were hurt. It used to be the Army would keep them in an Army Hospital until they recovered.
Well, that isn't what happens today. They are "given" to the VA for treatment. One has to wonder where they are moved and moved to getting the care they need to recover.
In short, it stinks. It is a huge disgrace to our Veterans!
So call your Reps and Senators and raise heck for our Veterans!!!!
