nothing new had the same problem back in the 80's after Vietnam war - NO jobs could not sell to VA if you did have a compay and were a Veteran WHY cause it was the good old boy network of the top staff at the VA had there friends in on the take and it's that way today!

VA has there people / companys to buy from and stick to them even if what there are buying is cheaper from someone else!

Same story different war! Sad -

Even now on jobs some are not so quick to hire a Veteran cause of the PTSD problems and quick action by the vet who will or could turn on you!

Sad to say but it's the same today..........
