This book is written by wife E. Denise Caldon Sorkness, her husband was a military man who serve our country in Vietnam.
She discusses the bureaucratic nightmare that our Veterans Administration system has become. While fighting and trying to get her husband's well-earned benefits, she also is trying to get help for his PTSD.
Later, she must confront the VA after he receives a diagnosis of cancer (from agent orange.) She tells of the bureaucratic nightmare that we now know (imaginary paperwork and "secret" waiting lists,) I was able to relate to the frustration she felt throughout this ordeal.
As I read this book, is that those who have served bravely, are treated so poorly. It just made me angry at the way that our veterans and their families have been treated by the VA it is an absolute shame and we should all be demanding change.
I applaud E. Denise Caldon Sorkness for fighting the system and continuing to do so, even after her husband's passing.
There is a simple way to revamp the VA and in the meantime, every man and woman who has served our country and need for medical attention should be given a card that allows them to be seen at any hospital they choose. Their care is the least we can do for the sacrifices each have made.
The VA is a top-heavy bureaucracy with layers and layers of management that is not necessary, in my opinion. I believe that anyone who has found to be deceitful in case management – such as these special lists – should be fired immediately. They should be charged with the gross negligence that they have been accused of, have their day in court and be fined with stiff penalties if found guilty.
Any additional comments?
There are some stories that brought me to tears. These brave young men and women deserve our respect and should be help whatever they need.
