Not Enough!

Every time I write a check to the Disabled American Veterans I wonder why it is that our disabled troops don’t get EVERYTHING they deserve from the VA?

They don’t, of course, although certainly the VA in San Diego is rated excellent. They have excellent clinics open seven days a week, and they treat veterans with skill and care.

Our treatment of our Vets certainly improves on what happened to British wounded after they returned from defeating Napoleon at Waterloo, when those who lost limbs were consigned to begging on the streets of London by the thousands.

But, as well as we do, we don’t do enough. We can’t do enough, but we fall short by a huge measure.

I am glad that private groups step up. But they should not have to step up!
