The Vietnam Veterans National Convention was held in KY and retired Army General Lt Gen Russel Honore weighed in with this
“The VA, as good of an organization as it is, it does not have the capacity to take care of all the Vietnam veterans, the Korean War veterans, and now all the new veterans that are coming from Iraq and Afghanistan.” In his speech, he said veterans should have the same insurance as members of Congress.
I have not been able to obtain the entire speech but will be looking for it. Not so sure about getting the same healthcare coverage as Congress – but that is certainly an option to be explored. Yes, the system is overloaded, especially when it comes to mental health, so we do need to seek alternative choices for out Veterans who deserve the bets healthcare in the world if you ask me!
