Bad news contrasts with memories of good VA care

The news of mismanagement and alleged scheduling fraud at the Veterans Administration brings to mind for me the timely, compassionate care I have received at VA facilities in both Fort Collins, Colorado, and Cheyenne, Wyoming.

When I needed attention urgently one day a few years ago, I got it almost immediately. Other times, I didn’t mind waiting because I was sure other veterans had more pressing needs and I understand that the VA’s ability to provide health care is limited by inadequate funding.

Don’t let the recent bad news shape your opinion of the people who see and treat veterans daily with professionalism and respect. In my experience, they are beyond compare and, once again, I thank them.
