    I work at the VA, so while I understand the "bashing" that goes on this website related to the backlog of benefits, it is quite frustrating in lieu of the very real and dedicated efforts of thousands of us that work VERY hard to aid and assist our heroes.

    I get just as irritated at the person  that claims to support the troops because they bought a Chinese-made magnet for their Chinese-made vehicle, or wore a red shirt of Friday, or whatever mental pablum they practice to make themselves feel better ...

    as I do at the person that bashes the VA having never even visited a medical center or attended an outreach clinic to see what we do.

    Thanks VERY much for the diary.  Well written.

    If your presence doesn't add value, your absence makes no difference. Make the effort to matter.
