​​Letters to Legislatures

TO: The Honorable President Donald Trump, The Hon. David Shulkin, The Hon. Ron ​​Johnson.


Our Organization is encouraged to know that a new administrator has been appointed to the

Department of Veterans Affairs. Recent accounts concerning the care of our veterans are alarming and disgraceful. Records have documented misdiagnoses of serious illnesses, unnecessary delays in treatments and unsanitary conditions in various clinics and hospitals.

Inspite of a staggering increase in funds, the health care of veterans seems to be deteriorating. In our opinion, it’s time for a major overhaul.

Our Organization would like to offer the following suggestions: 


  • Dismiss incompetent employees and eliminate bonuses,
  • Tighten hiring policies by carefully screening potential employees, 
  • Organize a group of well qualified employees, under your supervision, to make unannounced visits to VA hospitals and clinics; followed by a detailed evaluation,
  • Allow VA patients to obtain vouchers enabling them to see their family physician.
Thank you for your attention to these urgent issues.
