Truly a sad story, i do wish the VA could get the funding it needs to function as any other hospital would. Both of my grandparents had very good luck with the VA while they were around, i have to wonder if the problems we are hearing about are more pronounced in more densely populated areas. Whatever the issues are there is no excuse for sending people into a traumatic situation over a prolonged period of time and not helping them if/when they make it home. Of the 6 close friends of mine who have fought in Iraq or Afghanistan, 3 needed some kind of help to readjust to civilian life. none of those 3 used the VA system for counseling, they didn't want to deal with the system.
