We hope everyone had a good weekend last weekend and all those who attended the Marine Corps Birthday Ball events enjoyed themselves too!
In a recent rating of Veterans Nursing Homes 92 out of 132 homes have failing grades which isn’t saying a whole lot about administration or human resources, especially when caring for those who have served our country.
With 46,000 Veterans living in VA Nursing homes, this means that 32,200 are receiving inadequate to extremely poor healthcare.
But VA Healthcare all across the board from VA Medical Centers to Nursing homes has been less than stellar for many years, and it would seem that every appointed Secretary of the VA has had their own agenda vs. following protocols and regulations which in my personal opinion has only served to tear down the worlds largest healthcare system.
They even battle against sound and proven medical research siding on the side of old, outdated and just plain bad science, which is the current case with Agent Orange again!
We’ve been pushing for many weeks now for HR 299 which as you recall passed the House 382 to Zero and got bogged down in the Senate because the VA Administration is fighting tooth and nail to provide the earned, much needed medical care and benefits and from what we’ve seen is all based on outdated and bad science all to save a buck, but to save a buck at the cost of human lives.
So again, we’re asking everyone, including our civilian readers to please call the following people and ask that they bring HR 299 to the floor and vote to pass it in the Senate.

Your calls are very important to thousands of Veterans, and we’re asking you to make the calls immediately, then if you would, please call them every Friday, slow down their office, drive a point home that this bill must pass and quickly.
