‘Unforgettable’: What’s on tap at a $50K event for the nation’s veterans
- by admin
LAS VEGAS — For the veterans in the crowd, the day started like any other.
The president and vice president of the United States, both standing at the front of the room, spoke, as usual, about the opioid crisis, and then the vice president and president of defense, both in their blue uniforms, followed with remarks about military pay, and finally, there was the president, flanked by two other members of the military, talking about how much they’ve enjoyed it, and they were all there to show their support for him.
For a long time, this was the kind of thing that was just the way things were.
But over the past few weeks, with the president and his cabinet members trying to move beyond the crisis and the president pushing for major tax and infrastructure policies, it seems the public has been increasingly concerned about the VA and its leadership.
There’s been a significant amount of pressure on the VA, especially since the death of veteran Mark Duggan, who died after suffering a cardiac arrest while attending the VA Medical Center in Memphis.
And then there was last week’s announcement that the Trump administration will delay a key component of the Affordable Care Act for at least a year and possibly longer.
All of this has caused a lot of anger and concern among veterans and the broader public, and it’s been the backdrop for a lot more discussion and debate about the way veterans should be treated by the VA.
Some veterans and supporters of the VA are already asking whether it’s time to go back to the old ways of dealing with veterans and their families.
A lot of these questions come from veterans who have come forward, who are speaking out about their experiences and who have gotten help through the VA system.
What do veterans need from the VA?
The VA is trying to deal with the opioid epidemic by making it more transparent and accommodating for whistleblowers, but it’s not the only place the VA is grappling with this crisis.
In an interview with Fox News, former Navy SEAL Robert M. Tilton said that when he was in the Navy, he felt like the VA was more concerned about protecting its own reputation than it was about the veterans who needed it.
Tilton said the VA needs to have more accountability and transparency in order to help veterans.
“It’s an organization that should be transparent and open about what’s happening in their hospitals, their clinics, and their medical facilities,” Tilton told Fox News.
“But instead, they’re afraid of talking about it.”
Milton also said the government’s failure to fix the problem is a huge problem.
When I was in that organization, we did a lot to try to fix it, but we didn’t have the resources to do it, so it was more like, ‘We have to be careful what we do, because if we do something, we will be blamed for what happens to our own people,’ he said.
It’s just the kind the VA has always been about.
The VA has been able to function because of the hard work of veterans and those who are willing to put in the time and money to go to their appointments, he said, and not only that, they’ve been rewarded with high salaries and perks, like the $20,000 pay raise they got last year.
This is why I’m so frustrated.
This is why so many people are angry at the VA,” he added.
Milton has since filed a lawsuit against the VA for discrimination, and he wants the agency to be more transparent about what it is doing to help the VA deal with its problems.
You can’t have a transparent organization if you don’t know what’s going on.””
The VA has an obligation to fix this problem, but they need to be honest with the American people and let the American public know what is going on, because the VA doesn’t need to hide anything.
You can’t have a transparent organization if you don’t know what’s going on.”
What are the challenges veterans and other veterans have going forward?
Veterans are facing a myriad of issues, including:They’re dealing with an increasing number of opioid overdoses.
They’re getting hit by a lot less when they get home.
They’re also more concerned than ever about the rising cost of living.
Most importantly, they want to be able to access health care, which they can’t until the VA begins to provide it.
Veterans who have lost loved ones to suicide and are seeking to be reunited with their loved ones are concerned about how to find help and help them get treatment.
The most common type of mental health issues faced by veterans are post-traumatic stress disorder and depression.
Veterans also are experiencing homelessness, with many struggling to pay the bills and living in tents or other forms of temporary housing.
The VA will be hiring a staff of 50,000 veterans to assist with the care and care
