As the Country waves it's flags and use Veterans of the, poser, patriotic wars, especially, as political and marketing tools with symbols, words, and short term actions, while ignoring or out right denying the many issues, finally being addressed under Sec. Shinseki and with the help of the Obama Executive Administration and it's Cabinet Agencies, the Dedicated Volunteers, in all area's, have kept the many VA needs and charges under functioning since the Veterans Administration was first established!! Many being Veterans themselves but also those who've never served in the Military but see and feel the need to those few who've served them, that's 'Patriotism'!!
April 13, 2015 - This is National Volunteer Week, time to Celebrate Service. Time to salute those great men and women in every VA medical center who give of themselves to others. And time to invite everyone else to come along and discover the power of making a difference.
You’ll meet them every time you visit a VA medical center. In 2014, over 140,000 volunteers gave more than 11 million hours in service to America's Veterans.
We can’t calculate the amount of caring and sharing these VA Voluntary Service volunteers provide to Veteran patients. Our volunteers are a priceless asset to America's Veterans and to the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Neither of these recent wars have yet been paid for, nor the continued blowback from the spread and growth from the policies implemented!
Neither the long term results from, including the long ignored or outright denied existence of, till this Administrations Cabinet and Gen Shinseki, only Government branch consistent for the past six years, Veterans issues from!
As well as under deficits most of the, grossly under funded for decades and the wars from now, VA budget is still borrowed, with interest, thus added problem creating costs, with representative who control the purse strings blaming the mostly dedicated VA personal within, that shouldn't exist!
