And not FOX speak spin, drumbeating war drums for 'patriotic' effect, Poser Patriots, to be parroted for the ambulance chasing 21st century journalism while totally ignoring the past and facts of, especially recent past and especially related to our Military and Veterans of!!
August 17, 2014 - Caring for our nation’s Veterans is the highest honor and privilege for the men and women who serve them at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Our mission is to provide timely access to earned health care and benefits for millions of Veterans. That is a responsibility that we do not take lightly.
Over the past several months, it has become clear that we have fallen short when it comes to timely access to care. Today, we are working hard with Veterans Service Organizations, Congress and others to take corrective actions, accelerate access and begin to rebuild trust with the Veterans who entrust us with their care. A third of VA’s employees are Veterans themselves and they come to work each day focused on making a difference.
It is important that we openly and willingly discuss our mistakes and how we intend to improve. As we acknowledge areas where more work is needed, we also need to set the record straight when our work is unfairly mischaracterized.
One such story alleged VA mishandled enrollment applications. While we have worked to make the enrollment process less complicated, it is an area VA has identified for improvement. As we move forward, our focus remains on enhancing the enrollment system to better serve Veterans.
However, the media report on this issue failed to include key facts and information provided by VA, which resulted in a misleading portrayal of VA’s work in this important area. Veterans and the public deserve to have a complete set of facts presented. read more>>>
