Yeah, you should get out of here since you have no respect for the people who have fought your wars. In fact, get the hell out of America while you are at it!

I spilled more than enough blood for this country. People fight and die for this land, yet the government won't even give them a roof to sleep under? Just despicable.

“GOVERNMENT OF DECEIVERS (GOD)”

Government must be in Collusion with National Academy of Television, Arts and Science (NATAS) as well as other Social Media (Facebook, Newsvine etc). It appears now there is a tv series called Combat Hospital. Will this show be used to deceive Americans into believing that our veterans have rights and are being treated with the upmost care. It didn't happen in the Postal Holocaust so dont' count on it happening in the American Holocaust. The Mission unbestknown to you is Population Control - Death fix it (deficit)see Executive Order 12871. Let me suggest you rent Article 99. Also read how Texas officials are using sedition / terrorism to dispose of our veterans. Congress has a new creed when it comes to everyone including injured veterans, " its deny til you die, leave no liability alive." Terminal Injustice. They have already drawn "First Blood" and shall continue. Are you and other patriotic families prepared to be double-crossed (The American Betrayal).

Sadly for the Vets, the Government runs the VA. Nothing the Govt Empl control works like it should. Americans are Big Losers every time Big Brother touch's anything. That is one of the main reason that no rational adult votes for what pass for Democrats these days.

Agreed. I'm sick and tired of sleeping on the beach or in my vehicle every night. If that fool Obama can waste a billion on yet another stupid pointless war in Libya, he can get a few trailers for us homeless veterans.

"PROUD VETERAN" my ASS!! You need to leave the site and the country. You have absolutely NO appreciation for people who spilled their own blood fighting America's wars just so you could be free. You are a disgrace to the uniform, and to veterans all over America.

Reading all the above comments. I have sent numerous letters to the VBA's director with no results. Last I checked they had 4 or 5 different directors come and go in the last year alone in Los Angeles. The old director, Kerry Witty, was a non-Vet and the person in charge of benefits Michelle Kwok (not sure on spelling) is also a non-Vet. I don't think their intentions towards Vet's were any good. I don't know if they are still working there, but with no disrespect, it appears that the situation in Los Angeles is terrible for the Vets.
Michele Kwok, glad to know she is a non veteran, was last employed by the Los Angeles Regional office, 11000 Wilshire Blvd. This woman is responsible for seeing that deserving veterans benefits are reduced. I am 100%, she went after me, I won, my son died in the Los Angeles VA hospital and was kept alive on machines...(they admitted to what would be malpractice) fortunately, he lived.... but his quality of life is not worth a damn. MICHELE KWOK reduced him from 100% because he had a 4 year degree and was too young to be totally disabled (DO YOU SEE THIS YOUNG VETERANS RETURNING HOME MESSED UP?) My son was recommended to work in the fast food industry... here is a man with a degree in psychology, an Intelligence Analyst and because of his age, he should flip burgers. He sits in a dark room all day, barely sleeps and gets bags full of meds from the VA, oh his knee is destroyed,. MICHELE KWOK, HOW MANY VETS DID YOU KILL TODAY? He (again) won his 100%, but I suspect Michele Kwok is targeting him again for reducting. Oh, the IG is about as worthless as the rest of our administration.

Fire Michele Kwok, take her mega money salary and pay deserving veterans, not some non veteran who fit into a minority category for a government job.

Sorry to hear you are having all this BS from the VA. Is there any way you could turn the tables on this Michele Kwok and investigate her? I am sure she has something hiding in her closet.

Don't you have a bridge to crawl under?
The GI bill give vets money to buy homes. It may not be much but it is more than the average American gets and it depends on your years and rank of service but if you were in the military, you would know that! The GI bill also gives vets money to go to school and there may not be jobs out there but at least this gives some form of self respect to start a life. Oh, but then gain, you want something for nothing! The only blood you can talk about that you shed is when you scraped you knuckles on a park bench.
I used both the housing bill and the school bill and I got by and still I was homeless but the years I spent in school paid off and I didn't have a place to stay at the time, I still got a job that helped me put money in my pocket for self respect BUT IF YOU HAD ANY SELF RESPECT, YOU WOULDN'T BE SLEEPING ON THE BEACH!

If you break down the number the VA's OIG office is such a waste of money. These guys are paid like GS-13's and above making $100,000/year to do nothing. The VA should just allow an outside neutral non-biased agency to conduct the work of the OIG (would be cheaper too).
maybe they could contract with blue cross to do the claims and save money by doing so. the savings could then be used to pay more claims for the vets. and the turn around in claims processing could be 30 days or less.

I work at the Los Angeles VBA Regional Office. Michelle Kwok, is a fraud and does not care about Veterans. She accepts bribes to process certain claims faster than others. I know one Vet gave her a $500 gold bracelet to move the case faster.

Trust me, the LA VBA is a terrible organization and I have made numerous complaints to OIG, but they neglect to investigate. The OIG only works for management at their choosing. They don't investigate real issues.

Michelle Kwok is a crook and despite numerous attempts to report her misconduct to the VA's OIG office, they refused to do anything about it. I do believe that she was responsible for the death of many Vet's and intentional reduction of benefits. There are about 6 floors of employees there that are robots and all they do is press a button and print a document with her name and signature on them to reduce or cut benefits.
