Failing Those Who Served

I'm not specially dissing the Veteran's Administration these days, highlighting all of these stories of problems, but we're creating a rather large pool of injured, disabled, and emotionally troubled veterans these days, and we all need to understand that when they come home, we're obligated to provide them with the services and assistance they need.

Knight-Ridder Washington has a good story and some good additional link, including one to Discharged and Dishonored: Shortchanging America's veterans.

We're honor-bound to take care of those who have fought in our nation's military, but we're not doing a very good job of it at the moment.

We need real government reform in a lot of departments, not the least of which is the VA.
