An 85-year-old Marine vet of 3 wars is being screwed over by the Veterans Administration. He served in WWII, Korea and Vietnam, can’t hear and has all kinds of medical problems. The Marines released him with a 100% disability rating.
The VA tricked him
But the VA tricked him into signing off on only a 40% disability rating. Later he managed to get it raised to 70%. As a result, he is not getting the care he needs. This is abominable.
My Grandpa served in the Marines in WWII and is now approaching 90. The VA hospitals have worked him over as well, though not in nearly such an extreme manner.
A spent soldier has no pull
Its absolutely disgusting how veterans are treated in the US. By the time soldiers have become veterans and need their benefits, they are often in such poor health that they have no choice but to take what is given. In today’s America, where might makes right, a spent soldier has no pull and is left to beg and plead for his much-deserved benefits. How dishonorable.
