LOT GOING ON I’m trying to keep up…

Please note: V A REPORT  website is in no way affiliated with the VA, or any other government agency…
OK folks, this is  a quick post to let you know what’s going on…

On the site, I’m working to get a few more state pages up and running and figure out the reporting aspect…I think I found a couple of plugins that will allow contact forms and comments to go directly to the moderator for that page…That will allow the moderator for that page to deal with them directly instead of having to route everything through me…

On that subject,  I’ll be needing volunteers to moderate pages…They will need to be from the state the page is for,  have a computer… and an interest in helping Vets. They will have Editor privileges for that page and hopefully access to a couple of resource pages I’ll be putting together later…

OK…NOW FOR THE NEWS…

I thought that with all the HOOPLA, being called on the carpet in congress etc that just MAYBE the VA was starting to get the idea that WE’RE MAD AS HELL AND WE’RE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANY MORE…

Apparently not…

Seems like more typical VA  run-around to me, what do you think…

AND I thought that MAYBE congress was going to finally  start to address the VA’s many problems,,,

At  least someone is trying to help…

And here’s a guy that uses his own time Pro Bono (That’s  lawyer talk for “free”) to help Vets…

He’s helping Vets that are homebound to get a separate benefit meant to help with home care…

Ok y’all… it’s time to get back to the… WE’RE MAD AS HELL AND WE’RE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANY MORE…part…

The VA isn’t going to change until we MAKE it change…

And the way to do that is to DEMAND it from the people that were SUPPOSEDLY  elected to represent us…and the only way to do that is to convince them that if they don’t fix this problem NOW,  they will not be re-elected…

You may think “I’m only person…What can I do to make a difference?”

There is something that you can do that is very powerful…You can let your elected officials know that this is very important to and that you are watching them to see what they do and YOUR VOTE IS DETERMINED BY THEIR ACTIONS…

You can contact your senators and house members here…
http://www.contactingthecongress.org/

A phone call is most effective,  but  a letter or an email can have an impact too, especially if there are a LOT of them…Ask for a response,  engage them any way you can…and KEEP engaging them until they do something…

You can also contact NEWS MEDIA  in your area and let them know how you feel…

WARNING:  UNABASHED SELF PROMOTION AHEAD…
