I’m so very thankful for the men and women who defend my freedom! Once in a while, usually around this time of year, I see a post on facebook about how the troops wearing helmets should earn more money for defending our country than a football player on a field wearing a helmet, defending a football. When I see that post I always “like” and “share” it.
This is not a political blog and I don’t want it to be political. I have to say that as an American citizen I am shocked and upset about the Veteran’s Administration scandal. Lately there have been so many scandals that I’ve gotten used to the term “scandal”. But this one is different. This one is personal.
How could they think something like this would not catch up to them? It’s obviously a last-ditch effort by an agency that is broken to begin with. In my humble opinion, they need to re-build the entire VA from the top down. Get rid of the ones running it now and start from scratch. Make it stronger and much more reliable than it has ever been. Our military personnel deserve nothing less than the best. We owe them that much.
Every day I pray for this nation. I pray for our country to turn back to God. Don’t we understand that there will be dire consequences if we don’t? Hello!
I am so blessed to be a citizen of America. I am doubly blessed to be a child of God. It is my prayer that we find a way to honor and care for our Veterans in a way that will show them how much they mean to us. It goes beyond politics to a more personal problem. Every Veteran, no matter what war they fought in, deserves the best this country can give them. That so many died waiting to be cared for is a tragedy and the VA should be ashamed of itself. 😦
