A Shout Out to the Veterans Administration

I have spent the last four weeks visiting friends and family back home in Florida. Since here, I have accompanied my 76-year-old father from consultations to surgery to follow up appointments with a few unfortunate complications along the way. It has been emotionally taxing. Witnessing a parent, who has always been the fixer of the family, struggle to walk to the mailbox is hard to watch.

My father is a veteran, a Marine. He proudly guarded Presidents John F. Kennedy and Dwight D Eisenhower during his service. He is a proud patriot, tough as nails. He was injured in the line of duty. As such, he is one of millions of veterans of the Armed Forces fortunate to have rightful access to the services of the Veterans Administration (VA). Some of my earliest memories are of visits to the VA with Dad. In light of the recent controversy and scrutiny the VA has faced, I decided there was no better way to say thank you than with a post.
