$$ staff! Kudos to Stewart AND his amazing staff who are bringing issues to light to those of us who are inadvertently ignorant of Veterans issues. If you’re not in the military nor have gone through the VA system, how can you know unless you listen to those who have? You may have heard a story here or there, but many of us don’t understand exactly what the failings are systemically. We just hear it’s broken and need insight as to where and how. It makes it real and personal. Thanks to his veteran staff members for speaking your truths. (Seriously, a typewriter as a professional VA tool in the year of our Lord 2007?!? Wow, we’re on the cutting edge of some freaking technology there! 😳) I wonder in five years after everyone is “home” from Afghanistan and Iraq and memories fade how many people will be just starting their journey through the system? I’m sad to think their stories will still be the same. Service people can be fatalities of war long after they’re home.
And if you’re offended by humor? It’s a part of survival…it’s laugh or cry, and tears without a bit of humor leave you wrung out feeling more helpless. A bit of humor gives you a better sense of control and a better mindset to keep pushing.
Looking forward to insight on future issues!
