There is one constant in listening to what the Va has to say. You always listen closely because you can be 100% guaranteed that EVERYTHING that the VA says is a LIE!

Sadly but true. They are the govt and the govt can't look bad for the people. Veterans don't count unless they speak up and this has been going for years and the govt has gotten away with coverups all the time. Why should the VA be any different, they just know how to cover their tracks better than most.
How do you trust a govt that covers up? Time to wake up America!!! Take a stand! Get a backbone. We used to be proud of this nation and now we are an embarrassment.
Crime does pay for the govt!!!!
