Veterans’ stories

As a disabled veteran, you can imagine how thrilled I was to read in The Tribune on June 21 that Veterans Affairs mucky-mucks received millions of dollars in bonuses for doing terrible work.

The appointment delay and phony records pale behind the Los Angeles VA taking one to two years or longer to act on a claim. Imagine filing for a disability — or you are already disabled — and for one reason or another, your disability or health takes a turn for the worse and you may or may not get help for two years. I hope disabled veterans will share their stories with The Tribune. Veterans have been stepped over since 1776.
