I want to thank my vet advocate buddies and veteran supporting Kossacks.  I was just informed that The White House has made inquiries with the St Pete Regional Office and the State of Florida regarding veteran care and my husband's care.   The gentleman informed me that on the 16th of March the White House got involved with this case and on behalf of Florida veterans.   The counselor said that he had known of congressional inquiry and other political inquiry on behalf of constiuents but never heard of the White House directly specifically getting involved with a specific complaint and making an inquiry.  We made a difference and I hope that something will start moving in a positive direction for the care of our most valuable resource.  The main office at the 800 # sent an inquiry to contact me directly regarding the WH initiative and I will update as soon as I get some answers.  I want to thank Hal Donahue and the Radio program along with angleajean for their participation and love for veterans and appreciate all the help and support.   I also appreciate all numbers, contacts and forms made available to me.  I sent the interview directly in an email along with all of your comments and diary.  The counselor spoke to my husband directly and said he wanted him to know The White House was involved in his case and sorry to hear about the way things had gone on behalf of the VA.  He informed me that I possibly would be talking to the President in regard to this matter of VA care in the State of Florida.
Just one mis managed case is too many.  He was reading me the status of what is now
happening and that they are having to respond directly to the White House.
I said I thanked God and my friends and President Obama .   I contacted Hal and he said we could hope things move quickly for the good.   I trust but will continue to verify.   Never ever think a collective effort does not make a difference.  It does.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
