He recently was means tested by the VA and told that he would no longer be able to receive his care there because he doesn't meet the income requirements. No one seems to know what will happen next. He is worried and confused.
He is going to Texas to be close with family and find care. And it's quite possible that he contracted the cancer from Agent Orange but, of course, the government will do all in its power to deny that and send him on his way. This is just horrendous but, then again, he doesn't know the what and where of the final result so we'll just have to pray as we wait and see.
Thinking about this situation, it really is troubling to know that our good men and women in uniform who did all that was asked of them in harm's way are now being forgotten. And while this is happening, millions of illegals are being treated much better than our courageous vets, not to mention our lawmakers who are treated like royalty for the rest of their life while refusing to lift a finger to save our country from hell. If I didn't believer in a Judgment Day in the hereafter I would truly be angered beyond belief, but I know that we all, including our President and Congressmen and women will have to "face the piper" eventually.
There is something dreadfully wrong with a nation that treats her soldiers this way and I think America will have a great price to pay. It saddens me, for I know when my turn comes it will probably be even worse. America, wake up and pay attention. The very things that have been so dear to us are being destroyed routinely. Integrity and honor no longer are important to those in power and both our President and Congress should be ashamed.
Dear Lord: We thank you for Thy love and Thy grace and we know that Thou has the answer to all things. We pray for the care and well-being of our military veterans in their time of need. Many of our honorable soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines are now in the stage of their life where they need good medical care. Many have physical issues connected to military service late in life and are deserving of help from a grateful nation yet are being rejected and turned away. Give those who legislate and administer programs the wisdom and commitment to fully meet the obligations that our country made long ago. A grateful nation cannot be successful without tending to its obligations and meeting promises made to our uniformed forces now that their work is done. We ask for Thy help for them in Jesus' name, Amen.
