    In 2013,It would be great if the Veterans folks WOULD
    help Frank Marx. He will be dead before he wins. I assume
    your talking about your ex-husband when you talk about
    what happened in a private hospital. The Doctor"s have a plan ready to go this week. No one in America gives a shit about Frank, we in the Pacific Northwest do.
    Be well

    •  No... I was talking about Lake City Va in (0+ / 0-)

      1990.  
      If a private facility can help him that is wonderful.
      if you notice I went on air to declare that Florida and Ga
      VA's are not doing right by most of their vets.   Not all VA's are operating in the same fashion and that is exactly my point of having some sort of mandate for the VISN groups to treat ALL veterans with respect and dignity.
      I am glad you stepped in.  I tried to reach Orlando VA and was put on hold.  This is exactly what I have been preaching on here for years about Florida.
      I do not agree that non one gives a shit.  That is just not true.  Many do.  Just the VA's are failing down here and I tried to exhaust all efforts before again losing hope with the VA medical centers down here.  It worked in the nineties but has slid downhill since 2000.

      You are wrong about a private hospital with my x though.. that happened in 1990 in a VA facility.

        I am glad I called you a nice lady. I told Frank you and I have exchanged e-mails in the past. My thoughts about you
        are the same. Veterans are lucky to have you. We need
        all the help we can get.
        Good luck with your work!

      You said that the doctors have a plan ready to go this week. That is only because of what YOU did for me Mike. No one has ever done what you did for me Mike. I don't know what I did to deserve what you did for me - a complete stranger.

      I promice you Mike there is a SPECIAL place in Heaven waiting for you my friend!
