As a disabled veteran and advocate, I’ve wrestled with those in Washington and the rules they make for nearly a decade. How in the name of all that is holy do you get the people running things (usually poorly at best) to pay attention?
For years, I’ve been blocked at every turn. The Veterans Administration, Congress, & local Veterans Centers all have heard but not listened. Their inability to get it done and failing to take any real actions to fix how veterans are being treated says more about their intentions than any speech could. Us regular Joes and Jills who have sacrificed so much for this country and its security deserve better.
Now I’m fed up. I thought if enough of us made our thoughts known on veterans issues and made some noise that those in charge can no longer avoid us.
So now it is your turn. I’m asking you to tell them what you think. I’m willing to use my time and limited resources to speak up as LOUDLY as I can.
All I ask is that you lend me your voice in a simple survey. A few moments can make a difference in finally getting them to listen ALL to us.
