You are the veteran, the one who has fought and survived a war. You are the one who has lost your limbs. You are the one who feels your body is changing and becoming useless. You are the one who has lost your way. You are the one who has tried to move forward but your body is frozen and unable to move forward. You are the one who is going to have to relearn the ways of the body.
If you are, like me, also a fellow amputee, then you are the veteran. You are the one who lives with the constant reminder of your disability. You are the one who is getting old or getting fired or getting injured or getting lost in the shuffle. You are the one who has learned to live with a disability.
It is my belief that we are all veterans at one time or another, whether we are on a military or civilian job. There are a lot of different ways to get older. There are some that don’t involve a disability. There are some that do. I think that veterans have the most to lose when they are injured or get fired or fall on hard times. Their ability to move forward is severely limited.
I think that veterans are one of the most valuable groups in the world to any industry. The jobs that they do are great. The people that they work with are great. The people that are around them are great. But that is not the same thing as becoming veterans and living a life that is full of independence and pride. That is not the same thing as getting old.
In fact, many veterans get really really sick. And then they die. And then they get sick all over again. It seems like every time they go to the VA clinic, they get a little bit sicker. And die again. And die again. To get to the point where they can get the care they need, they have to be hospitalized.
There is a great video by the VA hospital that I found a while back that talks about the cycle of illness and death. It goes into some of the nuances of how it works.
The VA provides care for veterans through a network of hospitals and clinics. And they can get you a referral to a hospital that can provide care for you if you have a medical issue that you want to have a specialist look at. It’s an amazing system that is quite literally the only way to get care for the people you love when you need it.
The irony is that if you’re one of those people that’s been injured or has been a victim of a crime and you’ve been getting care through the VA, then you’re only seeing two or three specialists per year. And if you’re one of those people who’s never been to the VA, you probably don’t even know what the VA is. It’s a system that has a whole bunch of acronyms like VAX, PPO, and VAH.
It’s a system that is so effective because it is free to use. When you sign up for the VA online system, you are offered free access to an array of medical and physical equipment that are available at no charge to all veterans. You can talk to a doctor, take a physical, and get a prescription filled, all free.
At the same time, the VA system has been known to be corrupt and inefficient. The VA system has been known to be highly bureaucratic in the past. Its reputation has gotten worse over the years as a result. As a result, the VA system has been known to have many, many more problems that are not currently public knowledge. That’s why we’re so concerned about the VA’s recent decision to start charging veterans for equipment they don’t need (and which may not even be needed).
