VA Hospital Hallway

The VA Hospital

To get enrolled in the VA healthcare system.

Thankfully and gratefully, we acknowledge the benefits given by our government to veterans for medical care needs. Although we support their efforts, is the care truly up to par?

Would any member of congress suggest their beloved family members receive services of the same standards set for veterans?

The Military Veteran has a mission to expose, both good and bad, the experiences often had when receiving care by VA hospitals. I personally questioned the attention and care given at each, and after my two week stay within St. Louis’s John Cochran VA Hospital in November 2005, it is quite clear that we all have a duty to share our personal story for the hope and safety of all. Since then, my research has uncovered the horrors our brothers and sisters have faced with unsanitary implants, improper life-threatening dialysis dosages, to inadequate nursing care.

Please email us and share your personal story so that we may either warn or encourage medical attention at the deserving VA staff and hospital. Many voices are louder than one.

Changing the way veterans get treated.
