My experience with the VA hospital in Palo Alto has been outstanding! I am a veteran of WWII and have nothing but praise for their attention!!! Art.

What should not get lost in this current controversy is that the VA provides great health care to the vast majority of the veterans entrusted to their care and that 99% of the VA employees are doing a superb job. I know this from very personal experience - I am an Agent Orange Vietnam veteran who was diagnosed with incurable leukemia 12 years ago. For the last 12 years I have received all of my medical care at the Palo Alto VA and that care has been superb. I make this statement with some personal familiarity with health care delivery having been the Executive Director of the Stanford University Medical Center.
Yes, let's clean up the current mess but don't overlook all the great work done by VA employees every day.
