View Diary: Veteran of 2 Wars Denied Help by VA: Please Sign WTF Petition? (11 comments)

  •  Thanks for posting this. (6+ / 0-)

    I usually get these in my email but not this one.

    As I said in my comment for why I was signing, it is really sad that a vet who did not ask for help for so many decades is rejected when he finally has to.

    I also am very surprised by the means testing - that he was denied for being too wealthy.  My dad is a WWII vet who never had to fire his gun in the Pacific theater. He never was in combat and so no medals. He has top benefits through his wife's federal benefits and they are one of those couples who have enough money to live in a Very Nice senior apartment complex with an excellent dining room and other amenities. (There are also assisted living and skilled nursing units on the campus which either would move to when necessary.)

    He still uses the VA benefits for hearing aids and other war related problems.

    Hope thet greatly exceed the goal on this one.
